Meet the Logo30: Glennda Testone

Every day during the month of June, we will be spotlighting our 2019 Logo30. This powerful series profiles ordinary and extraordinary people who show pride in unique and provocative ways. Visit the Logo30 homepage to learn more about the series.

Glennda Testone, executive director of New York City’s LGBTQ Center, has worked tirelessly since 2009 to make The Center a welcoming, inclusive space for all New Yorkers. She’s spearheaded The Center’s programming for trans and gender non-conforming people, LBT women, and LGBTQ youth, carving out safe, supportive spaces for different sectors of the queer community. Testone and her team are currently collaborating with Google on Stonewall Forever, a digital version of the Stonewall National Monument in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in 1969.

What’s the true meaning of Pride? Testone, who lives in New Jersey with her partner and their daughter, has a three-part answer: “Pride is love. Pride is resistance. Pride is family.”
