It’s time for PFLAG Lubbock’s annual potluck picnic!
Tony Thornton and Tim Tippit have graciously offered to host this year’s PFLAG Lubbock Picnic on Tuesday, June 4, at 7:00 p.m. Bring a potluck dish to share, and a folding picnic chair if you have one, and come enjoy their beautiful home and yard, located at 3105 42nd Street in Lubbock.
Please feel free to bring along a friend, date, partner or spouse to share the fun, food and fellowship. We will also announce the 2013 recipient of PFLAG Lubbock’s Lola Marie Drew Scholarship that evening.
This is the last PFLAG gathering before our summer break. Our next regular chapter meeting will be in September.
PFLAG Lubbock’s Lola Marie Drew Scholarship, established in 1996, is awarded each year to recognize outstanding gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) students from the Lubbock community. We feel it is important to encourage the continuing education of self-identified GLBT students, and we hope to foster a positive image of GLBT young people in society.
Applicants must be gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, 18 years or older as of August 1, 2013, and attending a post-secondary educational institution in the South Plains area in Fall 2013.
Applications are judged on the following criteria: demonstration of integrity and honesty; participation and leadership in community activities; determination and potential to achieve goals; and demonstration of financial need.
Materials must be postmarked by April 30, 2013, including a completed application and questionnaire; high school, GED, or most recent post-secondary transcripts; two letters of recommendation, mailed by your references; and a signed copy of the scholarship recipient agreement.
Application is available HERE on our website, in both Word and PDF formats.

Excellent piece that challenges the “normal” trans* story we read in the mainstream media.
