BiNet USA President Wendy Curry to Receive Brenda Howard Memorial Award Please join us on the afternoon of Sunday February 22nd 2009 when the Queens NYC Chapter of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays)presents the 4th Annual Brenda Howard Memorial Award to Ms. Wendy Curry President of BiNet USA.

This award, given yearly, recognizes an individual or organization whose work on behalf of the LGBT Community best exemplifies the vision, principals and community service exemplified by the late bi-identified LGBT rights activist Brenda Howard who serves as a positive and visible role model for the Bisexual Community. This is also the first time a major American LGBT organization has named award after an out bisexual member of the LGBT community.

In addition to the Brenda Howard Memorial Award the chapter also presents the Morty Manford Award and the Carmel Tavadia Memorial Award.

Tickets for the Awards Luncheon and PFLAG Fundraiser held at Joe Abbracciamento Restaurant in Queens NYC are $55 or $500 for a table that seats 10.
