PFLAG invites you to a FREE screening of  the 2015 Docudrama , ‘PRIDE’

This BBC-produced film is based on a true story and depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners’ strike in 1984, at the outset of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign.  The National Union of Mineworkers was reluctant to accept the group’s support due to the union’s public relations’ worries about being openly associated with a gay group, so the activists instead decided to take their donations directly to Onllwyn, a small mining village in Wales, resulting in an alliance between the two communities. The alliance was unlike any seen before but was successful.
,Directed by Matthew Warchus and written by Stephen Beresford

Family Acceptance within Families of Color
Presented by: Kelly Brooks-Hailey

Participants are encouraged to share their stories and strategies for increasing support to LGBTQ diverse communities.

In this session you will:

Better understand some of the cultural differences, language barriers, and family dynamics that may impact how parents, families, and communities of color struggle with acceptance of a LGBTQ loved one
Discuss some of the unique challenges African American LGBTQ people, their parents, and extended families face in building acceptance within their community
Gain strategies and resources to better support individuals, parents, and families of color that come to PFLAG for support
