UNCLE GLORIA: ONE HELLUVA RIDE! recounts the astonishing true story of Butch, the macho owner of a South Florida auto-wrecking company, who in a desperate search of a way to hide from the law, transformed himself into a woman named Gloria. But what started out as a trick to beat the system ended up changing Butch’s life forever. Now in her 80s, Gloria’s stranger-than-fiction life has been filled with risky surgeries, sex work, family dysfunction, activism and a gender-bending love story. Full of humor, warmth and sass, UNCLE GLORIA is a rollicking ride that must be seen to be believed.

UNCLE GLORIA: ONE HELLUVA RIDE! has played numerous festivals, including Outfest LA, Newfest: New York’s LGBT Film Festival, Fresno ReelPride LGBTQ+ Film Festival, Raindance International Film Festival, and TWIST: Seattle Queer Film Festival.

The film is directed, produced, and edited by two-time Emmy-winning, former PBS documentary producer Robyn Symon. Gerald Sprayregen is executive producer and original music is by Ronen Landa. UNCLE GLORIA: ONE HELLUVA RIDE! is distributed by XLrator Media.
