This year’s theme of LGBT Heritage Month is “Queer Identity,” and the City Council wants to shine a spotlight on members of the gender non-conforming community who have lived their truth and paved a path toward the advancement of the LGBT movement. This is the first time the city has named an Ambassador for LGBT Heritage Month.
O’Farrell presented an official city resolution to honor Tortorella, who identifies as gender fluid and uses they/them/their pronouns, during the May 31 council meeting. Tortorella currently stars in the TV Land comedy-drama television series “Younger” and is an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, using their voice to help break down stereotypes and educate the public.
They declared themselves sexually fluid in 2016 and identified as bisexual in an October 2016 interview with Vulture. Tortorella uses singular they/them pronouns and uses their platform to educate on this subject by appearing on “The View” and other national programs.
