PostHeaderIcon April 2015 Newsletter of PFLAG–Oregon Central Coast

The latest issue of PFLAG Oregon Central Coast can be found here.

Thanks again to Nel Ward, who is not only the editor, but will be the speaker at our April 8 PFLAG meeting!  See more details on page 7 of the newsletter!

PFLAG members and friends are invited to attend a presentation of LGBT 101 by members of the Newport & Taft GSA (Gay/Straight Alliance) Clubs.  The session will be held from 4:00-5:30 pm on Wed., April 1 in the Community Room at OCCC in South Beach.  Ineka Estabrook, PFLAG Co-Chair and our GSA/Teen Outreach leader, has been working with the students to present the four dimensions of human sexuality integrated with their own experiences of coming out to different types of families and cultures within our rural communities.   A few of them have already helped lead this workshop for middle and high school students, and secondary staff at Eddyville School where they were very well-received.
