You’re about to meet and get to know one helluva woman! 75-year-old Gloria Allen is a Black transgender woman who grew up in the 50s and 60s on Chicago’s South Side and transitioned from George to Gloria after high school, but obviously before the Stonewall Uprising. Her story is riveting, empowering, inspirational. Case in point – while in her 60s, Gloria started a charm school for homeless trans youth – hence the ‘Mama.’ And….Mama Gloria is the title of a documentary (directed by former CWCW guest Luchina Fisher) that chronicles the life of this amazing woman. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss!
