Jacksonville's LGBT youth in crisis have people who help

It happens all the time. Non-profit Organizations that give out funds for scholarships, etc., are free to decide for themselves who qualifies as a recipient. If the KKK decided to give out college scholarships (and who knows, maybe they already do), they would have every legal right to award them based on essays on the evils of minorities.
Morally that'd be a little messed up, but legally not a problem.
Of course the PFLAG scholarships are going to be awarded to LGBT students, since the purpose of the organization is to assist that minority group in achieving equal opportunity in our government and society. Complaining about that would be like complaining about NAACP refusing to give scholarships to white students.

Good for them. Education is empowering.
