Scholarships to be Awarded to Navajo LGBTQ+ Students

For the first time in Navajo history, the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and two-spirit community has launched the Diné Pride Scholarship Program. Two separate awards will be presented during the Welcome Reception & Festival in Window Rock, Arizona.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City, all planned events will acknowledge the lifelong work of transgender women of color and honor Indigenous youth activism. As part of its mission to empower LGBTQ+ Native youth, Diné Pride will feature the work of indigenous student leaders around the country.
