When PFLAG founder Jeanne Manford marched with her gay son, Morty, in New York City’s Christopher Street Liberation Day March in 1972 – and held the first peer support meeting less than a year later – she could scarcely have imagined how much larger the organization would become, the number of lives PFLAG would touch, or the many ways – or to the many people across the country and around the world – support would be offered.
For more than four decades, PFLAG has been saving lives, strengthening families, and changing hearts, minds, and laws. We provide support to families and allies who are in need, through peer-to-peer meetings, online outreach, and telephone hotlines. Our family and ally voice is integral to advancing equality.
Upcoming things to do
March with us in two parades this week:
• July 4 in Edmonds: Meet up at Glen St. & 6th Ave N. by 11 a.m. to march with the Pride of Edmonds contingent. Look for rainbow flags and people wearing purple PFLAG “We Are Family” shirts. Bring your best rainbow blinged and patriotic selves!”
• July 8 in the Redmond Derby Days Grand Parade: Meet in the staging area at 10:30 a.m.
We’d love a strong contingent of marchers, so spread the word to your network of PFLAG friends and allies!
