Gloria Malone is an outspoken and unapologetic proud teenage mother and advocate in New York City. She has been featured in major news publications like the New York Times and on The O’Reily Factor discussing teenage pregnancy prevention through comprehensive sex education and supporting teenage families, not abstinence only sex education and stigma. Politics, policy and people are her passions, and she hopes to further pursue them with her public affairs degree from Baruch College. A member of the Echoing Ida reproductive justice writing collective (www.echoingida.org), Gloria also writes for several online publications and blogs regularly on her personal blog teenmomnyc.com and realteenagefamilies.tumblr.com.
