To commemorate Pride season, Barneys New York tapped a group of 13 activists, advocates, and allies to share what pride means to them. In this story and video on The Window, you’ll see visionaries including Antoni Porowski, Laith Ashley, Precious Lee, Ladyfag, Glennda Testone, and more explore the meaning of pride in their eyes.

Furthermore, as part of this program, with every Instagram post sharing the hashtag #WhatPrideMeansToMe this June, the Barneys New York Foundation pledges to donate $5 to The LGBT Community Center.
