Judy Troilo Ranked 80 in 100 most Powerful Leaders in Westchester

Marks First Time an LGBTQ+ Community Center Leader Makes The Cut

The LOFT LGBTQ+ Community Center is proud to share that Executive Director, Judy Troilo was ranked in The 2023 Westchester 100 by City and State NY Magazine. The list is a who's who of the suburban county’s most influential leaders!


According to City & State NY: "Before Judy Troilo became the executive director of The Loft, the county’s largest LGBTQ+ service provider, the organization was not the community staple it is today. Under Troilo, The Loft has increased its operating budget by 400% and tripled its staff to run its over 100 free programs, services and events. In June 2022, Troilo and Westchester County Executive George Latimer announced the groundbreaking of a new senior housing development friendly to LGBTQ+ people. The Loft also puts on Westchester Pride, which attracts 7,000 visitors, and the Hudson Valley Trans Forum."
