Great news from Portland:
Portland State University recently honored Khalil Edwards with a Rising Leaders Award. Edwards is one of the leaders of the PFLAG Portland Black Chapter, the first PFLAG chapter in the nation created by and for the black community, and dedicated to supporting African American LGBTQ persons, families, and friends through love, education and advocacy. Edwards award was presented by another local PFLAG leader, Maurice Evans.
The award was presented at an event honoring Oregon’s civil rights legacy, recognizing local leaders fighting for equality.
