PostHeaderIcon August 7: PFLAG will meet in Lincoln City

PFLAG to meet in Lincoln City Aug. 7

Oregon Central Coast PFLAG (OCC PFLAG) has been meeting in Newport since 2008. And will meet in Lincoln City for the first time on August 7 at 6:00 pm at St. James Santiago Episcopal Church, 2490 N.E. U.S. Highway 101, Lincoln City. All GLBT and parents, family, and friends of GLBT are invited to attend.

Parents, Family & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) was established in the early 1970’s. PFLAG is a national organization whose purpose is to provide support, education, and advocacy for families and friends of people with diverse sexual orientation and gender identities.

OCC PFLAG was started in 2008 following the suicide of a Newport High School student who had been harassed and bullied at school.  A group of LGBT professionals in Lincoln County decided to make our county safer for gay teens. The first step was to establish a PFLAG chapter for support, education and advocacy.  Supporting teens continues as a top priority for OCC PFLAG.

PFLAG acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.  As the parents, families, and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons, we celebrate diversity and work toward a society that embraces everyone.

We provide love and support for all PFLAG members, family and friends.  We work to create an environment of understanding so our gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender loved ones can live safely with dignity and respect.
