As an advocate, ally, and father, Booz Allen’s Terry McBride is focused on making a difference. You can find him speaking up for his transgender daughter at her elementary school, protecting identities by helping thwart fraud at the U.S. Postal Service, or playing his banjo to inspire people.
Terry, a technology wizard who helps his government clients understand potential threats, passionately supports the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) at his daughter Eli’s school, ensuring the club has funds, supplies, and snacks. Last year GLSEN, a national advocacy group for LGBTQ+ youth in schools, recognized the club with “GSA of the Year.” Terry and his family, who live in the Baltimore area, helped as many kids as possible attend the award ceremony in New York City, providing planning, financial, and chaperone support. It’s the family’s mission to create an affirming culture in the school and surrounding community.
