Dear Chapter Leader,

Pride will arrive for many communities this week! A few helpful reminders about ways you can engage with your community to celebrate PFLAG and Pride? Remember to #LeadWithLove when interacting with participants, collaborators, and attendees.

  • Approach town/city councils about making a Pride proclamation or flying a Pride flag
  • Use Pride Month as an opportunity for advocacy– rally chapter members to advocate at the local and state level. Remember that advocacy can be educational: Consider hosting a Read With Love-in
  • Share your PFLAG story as a speaker during a Pride performance event. 
  • March and table at a Pride event hosted by another organization, represent PFLAG at other community parades or festivals such as a Juneteenth event, an interfaith breakfast, or a social hour.  
    • If applicable, uplift or volunteer with other organizations’ Pride events
  • Write an op-ed for a local newspaper about PFLAG and Pride

As you solidify your plans to attend in-person events with your chapter this Pride season, keep safety a top priority! Don’t forget that we have additional safety guidance available here. Some states have passed discriminatory laws during the recent legislative session. If your chapter is located in such a state, please reach out to entities providing legal support in your area for proactive support.


Thank you for all that you do,

Laura Galeano (she/ella),
PFLAG Connects Manager

May 31, 2023 | 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT: When Someone Comes Out: Supporting and Affirming Our LGBTQ+ Loved Ones

The term “coming out” has become so mainstream that many people assume that the word—and the actions it entails—are simple. However, PFLAG members and supporters know that it can still be a harrowing for individuals and families. This learning session, updated for 2023, has great tips, tools, and ideas for those who want to support people who are LGBTQ+ that are planning to come out, while acknowledging that the experience is different for everyone. It will also provide recommendations for new (and potential) allies who want to demonstrate their support for the LGBTQ folks in their lives.
