“All in the Family” Topic of PFLAG Meeting

Oregon Central Coast PFLAG (Parents, Family & Friends of Lesbians and Gays) will hold its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. today (Wednesday) at St. Stephen’s Church at Ninth and Hurbert streets in Newport.

“All in the Family” is the topic for panelists representing families with LGBT teens and adults. They will share their experiences of coming out and coming together as a family. The meeting will also include time for support, refreshments, and socializing.

PFLAG is a national organization established to support the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) community, their families and friends through its mission of Education, Support and Advocacy. Research shows that LGBT students who receive support from their families, schools and communities are able to survive the stress and challenges far better than students who don’t have that support. PFLAG provides factual and helpful information and personal connections for families whose children or teens believe they may be among the minority in gender orientation or identity. For more information, call Jeanne St.John at 541-265-7194.
