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 over four decades, PFLAG has provided support to families and allies who are in need, through peer-to-peer meetings, online outreach, and telephone hotlines. PFLAG National also offers a huge variety of resources and programs that provide support for those in need.
Our support meetings are now online
We’ve missed seeing you at our in-person support meetings, but thanks to web-conferencing technology we can still come together to share and provide support to each other virtually three times a month. So please join us!
Our June meetings will be June 3, 8 and 23, all from 7 to 9 pm and online using Zoom. For security and confidentiality reasons, we ask that you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for access information.
GUEST SPEAKER AT JUNE 8 MEETING:
Laurie Colacurcio of Lambert House
Laurie will update us on how Lambert House has adapted to provide online programming for our LGBTQ+ youth while adhering to our state’s stay-at-home order.
We meet at the following times each month:
1st Wednesdays, 7-9 pm
2nd Mondays, 7-9 pm
4th Tuesdays, 7-9 pm
We’re looking forward to seeing you again. We’ll get through this pandemic together!
2019 LGBTQ Asian and Pacific Islander Youth Report
In 2017, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation partnered with researchers at the University of Connecticut to conduct a groundbreaking survey of over 12,000 LGBTQ youth and capture their experiences in their families, schools, social circles and communities. More than 1,200 Asian and Pacific Islander LGBTQ youth responded to the survey.
This resource presents data collected from these youth, shedding light on their challenges and triumphs encountered while navigating multiple, intersecting identities.
Love Calls Back
