EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

Honoring Stanley N. Griffith,
2021 Recipient of the Cornerstone of Equality Award

Stan Griffith’s dedication to Greater Boston PFLAG is unparalleled. Over nearly twenty years, Stan has provided the vision and leadership to transform the organization into one of the largest, most successful PFLAG affiliates in the country. One of his proudest accomplishments is his advocacy for anti-bullying legislation, which was enacted in Massachusetts in 2010.

Stan also spearheaded the formation of support groups specifically for parents with children who are gender nonconforming and/or transgender. When he stepped off the board in 2012, Stan was awarded the lifelong title of Chair Emeritus.

Celebrating the Next Generation of LGBTQ+ Leaders

We are thrilled to be awarding two high school seniors with scholarships in 2021. Our second scholarship this year was made possible by the parents of Thomas V. Earle in honor of their son’s courage and leadership in promoting LGBTQ+ inclusion.

These youth leaders will be recognized at the event for their efforts promoting LGBTQ+ inclusion and acceptance. Last year’s awardee, Banti Jaswal, was selected for their incredible leadership as an advocate for the intersex community. And we can’t wait to share the inspiring work of our 2021 winners with you!
