We’ve got brand-new ways to stay connected this week, including another edition of Something to Talk About Live. Did you miss last week’s broadcast? You can watch it now on Facebook or YouTube.
Get and stay connected
The leaders of our 400+ chapters are doing the critical work to keep their chapters connected via online support, and digital meetings and events. Now, PFLAG National is hard at work rolling out a brand-new program that will provide infrastructure, training, and promotional tools to support their move online. Watch this space next week for the big announcement!
We know that finding ways to provide -- and get -- support during this time can be tricky. Here’s a reminder that you can cope with your PFLAG hug withdrawal by making an extra effort to check-in with people. Download (and share!) our guide to ways to be supportive when hugs are off limits! Just click the image and save!

An open letter about COVID-19 and risks to the LGBTQ+ community
PFLAG National joined 100+ organizations signing on to this letter, which addresses the LGBTQ+ communities’ increased vulnerability for coronavirus, and offers a series of strategies for all parties handling COVID-19 surveillance, response, treatment, and media coverage to reduce further stigmatization of vulnerable groups.
Join PFLAG National live this Thursday, April 9th at 4:30 PM ET/1:30 PM PT when we'll be talking about Julian Shen-Berro’s NBC piece, “Queer festivals, drag performances and LGBTQ meetups turn digital.”
