She was selected by Wanda Sykes to be a part of Wanda’s first episode of Herlarious on Oprah’s OWN network, as well as Fierce Funny Women on Showtime. Her national network debut on NBC’s Last Comic Standing caught the attention of Russell Peters – “Your angle is very fresh. It’s the black woman that we need to see, as well. It’s the upwardly mobile black woman.” Gloria’s humorous opinions on life have been chronicled in the blog “The Persuasive Pundit” and she has recently been published in a Seal Press Anthology called “Here Comes the Brides! Reflections on Lesbian Love and Marriage”. She is currently working on a memoir that humorously recounts her outlandish and hysterical misadventures in the city.
