Ace of Hearts Curator Josslyn Glenn is a Southern California native and Black Latina transgender filmmaker, writer, spokesperson, and Outfest Programmer dedicated to promoting nuanced representations of queer and trans people of color that have historically been under- and misrepresented in media.
Since graduating from UCLA with a dual degree in Chicana/o Studies and Gender Studies and triple minor in Film, Television and Digital Media; Spanish; and LGBTQ Studies, she has developed and produced content of her own, featuring predominantly Latino and Black American queer and trans characters.
She was featured in a BBC video about her upbringing as an Afro Latina, Afro Chicana, and Blaxican woman. She has worked on the likes of Netflix’s Disclosure, Con Todo’s Visions of Us, and ABC’s Soul of a Nation.
When she is not craving nachos, she is writing her second book, Tranny Pants, a collection of diary entries, essays, interviews, poems, and short stories detailing the familial and romantic lives of trans people she has come across.
