PFLAG National Parent Online Event

By Charlotte Robinson, May 02, 2022


PFLAG National announced that their second annual Parent Day celebration will take place virtually on Sunday May 22nd. This event is an opportunity to celebrate & honor the families, allies & LGBTQ people who have stood by the mission of the organization since its founding. This year’s theme is “Lead Like Jeanne” honoring PFLAG founder Jeanne Manford who marched alongside her son Morty in the Christopher Street Liberation Day March in 1972 bearing a sign to urge other parents to join her as advocates & supporters of LGBTQ rights. Brian K. Bond, Executive Director of PFLAG National stated, “It took an enormous amount of courage to be openly LGBTQ+ fifty years ago & it took guts to be an LGBTQ+ affirming parent & school teacher then, too. But Jeanne Manford showed us not only that LGBTQ+ allies can speak up & speak out, but that they should. In a year when officials from the State House to the school board have criminalized parents of LGBTQ+ people, PFLAG National is proud to celebrate loving parents & caregivers who fight the good fight. We hope everyone who loves an LGBTQ+ person will join us on May 22nd to feel the love & to get inspired to lead like Jeanne did.” The second annual PFLAG Parent Day event will feature the stories of courageous LGBTQ individuals, allies, parents & caregivers plus appearances by Big Freedia, Cody Rigsby, George Takei, Matteo Lane, MUNA, Tommy DiDario, cast members from Hulu’s “Love, Victor” & many more to be announced. Parent Day will be streamed at PFLAG.org/ParentDay. For More Info…
