ABOUT THE FILM
“Raising Zoey”, directed by Dante Alencastre, is the heartwarming story of
a family faced with the insurmountable challenges of a youth’s gender
transition.

Affecting the lives of countless kids, teenagers and even adults, 13
year-old trans activist Zoey Luna wants nothing more than to simply go to
school, learn, have fun with her friends in Downey, CA. Unfortunately,
ignorance and intolerance have not always made this easy. With the help of
her mother Ofelia, her older sister Leticia and the ACLU, Zoey fought
school officials for her right to self-identify in school. Even in the face
of bullying and endless teasing from both school officials and students,
Zoey determinedly continues to live her life as she is and tells her story
in the hopes of helping others persevere in living their authentic lives.
