PFLAG Tri-Cities Website is Launched!

Just in time for our first meeting tonight, is on the web! Check it out! Spread the word.

Don't miss our first meeting at 7 p.m. at ETSU in #503 of Warf-Pickel.

People might wonder who is welcome at such a meeting. Is this a place to debate the Bible or the appropriateness of the organization?

Answer: No.

The meetings are open; however, the purpose of PFLAG is support, education, and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons and their parents, families, and friends. This is the vision statement for PFLAG:

"We, the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, celebrate diversity and envision a society that embraces everyone, including those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. Only with respect, dignity and equality for all will we reach our full potential as human beings, individually and collectively. PFLAG welcomes the participation and support of all who share in, and hope to realize this vision."

As we form a speakers' bureau, we will communicate at more public events in which people can dialog about other things.
