Coming out can be challenging for anyone who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, or Queer. Preceding national coming out day, we have panelist from PFLAG Tacoma who will be talking about their experiences with the coming out process. PFLAG (formerly known as an acronym for Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) is a volunteer organization whose mission is to meet people where they are and collaborating with others through: Support for families, allies and people who are LGBTQ, educating ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ, advocate for our community members to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ.
PFLAG envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Date and Time: Oct. 10, 2017 from 12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
