Lilly Gorrie Scholarship
Lilly was born in June of 2013 (she is a Pride baby through and through). She does not have a big “coming out” story because from the moment she could form an opinion, she has known exactly who and what she is. She’s never been afraid to speak her mind, advocate for herself and others, and has one of the biggest hearts imaginable.
Lilly officially started her social transition to the amazing girl she is today during her kindergarten year. She has proudly navigated the school system, educating her teachers and peers along the way about what being transgender means.
Lilly has just finished her 4th grade year in the Enfield Public School system, and continues to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community.
Lilly is extremely honored to lend her name to the PFLAG scholarship for Enfield High School graduates. As a final remark, Lilly would like to remind every individual here to be proud of who you are and that you are all loved.
