McCann Pride Portrait Series with Katie Henry
How many times have you been to Stonewall? I’ve only been a handful of times
What does Stonewall represent for you? Stonewall represents the LGBTQ pioneers that started the movement, that fought for our rights, that put their life on the line, paving the way for the generations that followed.
Describe yourself in 3 words. Witty, Tenacious, Resilient.
How important is it for you to be out at work? Very important! When I first graduated I worked in the sports industry and worked with a ton of guys. For some reason I never felt comfortable telling them about myself, I was very private. When I started at McCann, I didn’t hide that about myself at all because I think it’s one of my best qualities. It’s who I am and I am ridiculously proud of that.
Who is your biggest advocate? My siblings, they’ve been supportive since day one and I’d be lost without their support.
Favorite queer icon? The Ellen’s (Ellen Degeneres and Ellen Page)
