New Digital Program “PFLAG Connects”

By Charlotte Robinson, April 22, 2020
PFLAG National launches “PFLAG Connects” extending its support, education & advocacy efforts further into digital space. The new platform provides the organization’s large national network of local chapters with tools, training, starter kits & dedicated staff support to transition chapter meetings, support services & events online. Through this program PFLAG connects communities, families & LGBTQ+ loved ones now & into the future. Brian K. Bond, Executive Director of PFLAG National stated, “In the weeks that have marked dramatic & unprecedented changes for families the world over, the PFLAG Chapter Network continues to be a vital resource to local communities as the extended family of the LGBTQ+ community. Families turn to us for support & PFLAG continues to meet those needs by providing support meetings & virtual hugs, timely & topical education, training & technical support & influential advocacy through PFLAG Connects.” PFLAG Connects includes a weekly live streaming event “Something to Talk About Live!” to engage people on Facebook & YouTube in timely topic-driven conversations. This Thursday April 23rd at 4:30P ET Something to Talk About Live! will feature a conversation with Rev. Troy Perry founder of the Metropolitan Community Church, & Pastor Jay Bakker son of Tammy Faye & Jim Bakker & founder of Revolution Church who was honored in 2012 by PFLAG National with the Straight for Equality in Faith award. Jamie Curtis, Director of Chapter Engagement concluded, “Offering these great tools through PFLAG Connects is a giant step in meeting the needs of our communities in this new reality of social distancing. Our job is not done, though. Having the tools & knowing or having access to use them varies from chapter to chapter, community to community. That is why we have built-in training & direct support for chapter leaders as they navigate virtual meetings.”
