Lola Marie Drew Scholarship

PFLAG Lubbock gives this scholarship to recognize our outstanding gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered (GLBT) students from the 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.

PFLAG Lubbock has several members who volunteer to speak to community groups and university classes about issues related to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender sexuality.

Population(s) Served

What if you had to think twice when trying to access a restroom to relieve yourself? What if you en­tered a bathroom most appropriate for your gender identity only to be escorted out by the police? Or even more traumatic had an accident because no one would let you use a toilet in either the men’s or women’s room because they had a preconceived notion that your presence would upset some unspoken bathroom balance. All of these examples and more are just some of the obstacles that gender-variant, differently-abled, and some not so stereotypically male or female folks encounter when trying to do something as simple as use a toilet.
LIST (Lubbock Initiative for Safe Toilets) is a group of gender-variant, differently-abled and tradition­ally gendered individuals who are very interested in creating safe bathroom space for people who do not fit the binary gender construct of female and male, or have special circumstances that might require a differently gendered caretaker to escort them to the toilet. We recognize that in Lubbock, many people have no safe places to go to the bathroom. They get harassed, beaten, and arrested in both women’s and men’s rooms and many avoid public bathrooms altogether, hence developing health prob­lems. We understand that this affects people with a range of gender identities including people who do not identify as female or male, transgender people who do identify as female or male, as well as many masculine and butch women, and feminine men. Therefore we are committed to establishing gender-neutral bathrooms and we believe that all people, regardless of their gender identification or presenta­tion have the right to access safe and dignified restroom facilities without fear of harassment, judgment, or violence.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

to promote the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons, their families and friends through: support, to cope with an adverse society; education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights. Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.

Education programs, outreach, support groups, scholarship disbursements, hotline, facebook and twitter presence, speaker bureau

large volunteer staff, longevity and recognition in community, partnership with churches and institutions of higher education

We have achieved all of our outreach and educational goals in years past. We have not completed our transgender safe bathrooms program, which is ongoing. We have not achieved the goal of becoming part of Texas Tech University's fundraising efforts, although that project is 90% complete.
