Women Spotlight

Meet Stacy Lentz of Stonewall Inn

Stacy Lentz has had a front row to the trials and triumphs of the LGBTQ community. Hailing from a small conservative town in Kansas she has witnessed the oppression, ridicule and homophobic environments that exist across the country. Her caring and supportive family couldn’t obscure the fact that homophobia was alive and well in middle America.

Non-Profit Spotlight

Heritage of Pride / NYC Pride

Member Spotlight

Barton L. Jackson II

Coming from a family of bankers, you might be inclined to say that the financial services stars have aligned and continue to align for this California-born and Idaho-raised, TD Bank Small Business Specialist, Barton L. Jackson II.
“All three of my aunts worked in banking, and my mother and father actually met when they worked for Bank of Idaho and First Data, respectively,” said Jackson. His dad was part of the team that computerized the first credit cards and then went on to become a business consultant specializing in the computerization processes and internet-inventory solutions – his mom’s bank was the test pilot. How ironic is that?
