Norman Honors Kay Holladay, PFLAG Co-Founder

The Oklahoman has a nice article today about Kay Holladay who, with Jayne Hazelton, co-founded the Norman chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays - PFLAG. Kay has been a repeat presenter at Oklahoma's NEW Leadership training because she personifies fearless advocacy. She is pictured here with Sheryl Siddiqui (Tulsa Islamic Society, left), Penny Painter (Resonance, Tulsa) and the wonderful artist/activist Dana Tiger (Penny and Dana are on the right). The City of Norman honored Kay this year with their Human Rights Award. (Does Oklahoma City give out a human rights award?) Click here to read the article.

  1. I had the opportunity to meet Kay a year or so ago. What an outstanding and enthusiastic woman! She is someone who has raised the level of consciousness regarding gays and lesbians.

    The sentence from the story about her three children, "all equally incredible, yet two of them have more rights than the third. In a world that is so advanced in other areas, I find that fact simply unacceptable," is a snapshot of Kay's unrelenting drive for the fair and equal treatment of all people.
