GLBT Parent support group meetings
PFLAG Lexington is a support group for parents with gay, lesbian, bisexual or trans-gender children. We are dedicated to helping other parents who are dealing with these issues in their family and in our society. Our meetings provide a safe, non-judgmental place where both attendees and all conversations remain confidential. We welcome friends interested in support, education and advocacy.
On the first Sunday of the month, we meet from 2:00 to 4:00 at the Pride Center, 389 Waller Ave. The third Sunday of the month, from 2:00 to 4:00, we meet at the Good Foods Co-Op, 455 Southland Drive, in the Rochdale Room.
On Saturday, October 16, at 12:00 P.M., PFLAG will present a free film screening of Straightlaced: How Gender’s Got us all tied up, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, located at 564 Clay’s Mill Road.
With courage and humor, the film depicts teens who identify as straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual or questioning, as they open up their lives to the camera. Topics covered include the intricacies of choosing a deodorant, handling the locker room and the classroom, and mourning the suicide of classmates. Coming of age today has become increasingly complex and challenging; Straightlaced offers teens and adults a way out of anxiety, fear and violence, and points the way toward a more inclusive, empowering culture.
