October 11, 2023 is the 35th Anniversary of National Coming Out Day, a day meant to celebrate LGBTQ+ people living their lives openly, support those working to come out of the closet, and always center safety as LGBTQ+ folks make those decisions and plans. It is also an opportunity to reflect on what it means to be openly LGBTQ+ and how our understanding and expectations of coming out have changed over the years.
Everyone deserves access to diverse stories and inclusive education— and the freedom to learn. PFLAG is a proud partner of the Banned Books Week coalition, and we're encouraging PFLAGers to Read With Love. How can you Read With Love?
Visit pflag.org/ReadWithLove to learn about how you can take action and support inclusive books and education.
PFLAG Connects: Communities - October 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.
