PFLAG Virtual Mother’s Day Brunch

By Charlotte Robinson, May 05, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues PFLAG is presenting a special virtual Mother’s Day event on Sunday May 10th when they’ll air a celebration of motherly love with the “PFLAG Virtual Mother’s Day Brunch" starting at 2P EST/11A PST. This free online special event will raise awareness & funds for PFLAG National which is the largest organization in the country serving our LGBTQ community, families & allies with deep roots in 400 small towns & big cities nationwide. Appearing on this virtual event will include Belinda Carlisle & James Duke Mason, Alec Mapa, Bright Light Bright Light, the “Boss Baby” JP Karliak, Rachel & Karen Mason of the hit Netflix documentary CIRCUS OF BOOKS, OneUp Duo, Malia Civetz, PFLAG families & more. The event will be presented by executive producers Michelle Robinson & Philip D’Amour, coordinating producer Sophia Bonhomme & graphics by Five by Five Global. The idea for PFLAG began in 1972 when Jeanne Manford marched with her son Morty in New York's Christopher Street Liberation Day March, the precursor to today's Pride parade. After many gay & lesbian people ran up to Jeanne during the parade & begged her to talk to their parents she decided to begin a support group. The first formal meeting took place on March 11th 1973 at the Metropolitan-Duane Methodist Church in Greenwich Village now the Church of the Village. Approximately 20 people attended. Today with over 400 chapters & 200,000 members & supporters crossing multiple generations of families in major urban centers, small cities & rural areas across America, PFLAG is committed to creating a world where diversity is celebrated & all people are respected, valued & affirmed.
