Texas A&M names diversity award after transgender activist Frye

DallasVoice.com – Tammye Nash

Phyllis Randolph Frye has been fighting the good fight for LGBT rights for more than 30 years. She is the most high-profile transgender activist in Texas and is recognized around the country for her work. And now she is being recognized by her alma mater, no other than that bastion of machismo and heterosexuality, Texas A&M University.

A&M’s Department of Multicultural Services recently presented the 2009 Diversity Service Awards, including the Phyllis Frye Advocacy Award.
