Dear Chapter Leader,
Tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 15th, the The Kelly Clarkson Show will air a full, PFLAG-inspired episode centering the stories of transgender people and how #LoveTakesAction. Tune in to see our own Jeff Walker and his daughter Harleigh from PFLAG Auburn (Ala.), along with Laverne Cox, Trace Lysette, and Patricia Clarkson. You won’t want to miss it!
We’ve got an easy-to-use toolkit with suggested posts and messages for you to share a tune-in notice widely, not just with your chapter but your social media followers too; we want to drive viewership and build excitement! Also, please plan to comment on The Kelly Clarkson Show’s Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok posts about the show on Wednesday and after. Your words of love and affirmation will help keep those spaces safe and affirming for our transgender loved ones and families.
Let’s ensure that #LoveTakesAction in support of our trans loved ones.
Jamie Curtis (she/her)
Director of Chapter Engagement

Authentic Selves: Celebrating Trans and Nonbinary People and their Families
A beautiful and powerful book developed by interviewer Peggy Gillespie, and published by Skinner House Books with the collaboration of PFLAG National and the Transgender Legal & Defense Fund, Authentic Selves celebrates trans and nonbinary people and their families in stunning photographs and compelling stories.
Now, the folks behind Authentic Selves have a traveling exhibit that PFLAG chapters can bring to their communities, nationwide. A number of chapters are already participating, and yours can be next! Whether hosting at a school, house of worship, library, or elsewhere, Authentic Selves—which features numerous PFLAG families within its pages PLUS a preface by PFLAG National CEO Brian Bond—builds on PFLAG’s work to soften hearts, change minds, and create a lasting difference.
