Eden Anaï Luna is a member of the Transgender Advisory Council.
Luna is a Latine transfeminine nonbinary person who uses they/them pronouns in English and elle pronouns in Spanish. Luna is the Program Manager for the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Transgender Economic Empowerment Project (TEEP), which offers holistic support for transgender people in need of legal name and gender marker changes, career-development skills, employment authorization document preparation, and advocacy in gender-based discrimination incidents. TEEP also offers “Trans 101” training to corporations, small businesses, shelters, schools, and law enforcement agencies to shift the movement towards trans-inclusive services. In serving as a Councilmember for the Trans Advisory Council of the City of Los Angeles, Luna works with the community to implement policies and procedures for the socio-economic equity of transgender and nonbinary people in Los Angeles. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Luna grew up in a low-income migrant single-parent family and was well acquainted with the poverty and financial instability that faces many in migrant Latinx communities, especially single-parent family units. Transitioning with nearly no role models for non-binary people, they explored uncharted territory. They are advocate for transgender, nonbinary, and intersex communities, especially in the realm of immigration, economic justice, and decriminalization of poverty-based survival crimes. With expertise in career/finance coaching and a network of resources, Luna wants to bring power back to their communities one encounter at a time.
