February is here and love is in the air! Between Valentine’s Day and my birthday, February is by far my favorite month. Although your meet-cute may have happened during a dull month like July or September, February can be a time to stop and reflect on the things you love about your partner: things that bring a smile to your face, a skip in your step and an oasis in your mind.
Sunday, February 9, the presentation at our PFLAG general meeting will be a panel of LGBTQ couples who will share their love stories. Parents and family members often worry about their LGBTQ loved ones. When your child comes out, you have fears that life will be that much harder for them. But seeing thriving, happy people in committed relationships can show worried folks that everything is going to be okay. Love is love and that love is grand.
Please join us as we celebrate love. After the general meeting, we will break into small groups where folks can share their stories, share worries and receive support from other parents, family members and allies who are on the same journey. We have a small group for people who want support for issues of sexuality (LGB) and one for gender identity (TQI+).
Doors open at 1:45 p.m. We meet in Room 113/114 at The Montrose Center, 401 Branard Street. We have a small group for people who want support for issues of sexuality (LGB) and one for gender identity (TQI+). During small groups, folks can share their stories, share worries and receive support from other parents, family members, or allies who are on the same journey.
