CAPITAL CITY PRIDE PRESENTS: ZOEY LUNA
The Capital City Pride Speaker Series encourages participants to achieve their full potential, be confident in their abilities, and be inspired by LGBTQ+ community leaders.
Join us for our February speaker, pioneering transgender youth activist turned actress from Los Angeles Zoey Luna. Registration is required.
As one of the first transgender youth public figures, Zoey has shared her life story through several documentaries and interviews. Zoey (along with her mother) was invited to be in “Laverne Cox presents: The T word”, a documentary for MTV following the lives of transgender individuals that was being headlined by Zoey’s longtime friend Laverne Cox which first aired on October of 2014.
Zoey then began a nearly 3 year shoot for the documentary “Raising Zoey” after local filmmaker Dante Alencastre saw Zoey make her first public appearance at the age of 12, speaking at Transgender Day of Remembrance (a worldwide event on November 20 each year) in West Hollywood. Dante was taken aback by Zoey’s outspoken voice and confidence and proposed the documentary which covered Zoey’s life from the age of 13 through 15.
"The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities."
