The 45-year-old organization has been a powerful ally in the fight for LGBT rights.
Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) have been important allies in the community for 45 years. With chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, they continue in their mission of inclusiveness of all spectrums of the LGBT community.
This year, they are continuing with that mission by providing scholarships to San Diego students graduating high school or currently in college.
The local PFLAG chapter released a statement providing details and information about the awards:
“PFLAG San Diego County is pleased to announce its 20th year of academic scholarships available to LGBT high school seniors continuing on to higher education or full-time undergraduate and graduate students.
