PFLAG Connects: Communities May Meetings

PFLAG Connects: Communities (PCC) provide a safe, virtual, moderated space where people with shared experiences can connect each month. PFLAG National’s current communities gather people of Latino, Black/African American, and Asian American and Pacific Islander backgrounds to gain support, ask questions, and learn from others who have been through similar experiences. 

We also host a Military Community meeting, in partnership with our friends at the Modern Military Association of America (MMAA).

New in May: PFLAG Connects: Gender Spectrum Parent Community, the newest addition to our PCC program. The first meeting will meet for 90 minutes on the third Monday of each month, at 8pm ET/5pm PT, beginning Monday, May 20th.

Learn more and check out our upcoming meetings for May.
