Words Matter!

Are you looking for Understanding of LGBTQTIAA+ Terminology?

What words to use when and where?

Join us at 5pm March 17 at our PFLAG Community Meeting.  We will present a short

presentation and have a panel of knowledgeable LGBTQ+ folks, together we will try

and address your questions and more.

Meeting Location: St. Paul’s UCC, 17  Bond Street (corner of Green Street) in Westminster.

All are welcome and encouraged to Attend!


FCPL is seeking people to participate on its first Human Library program and folks from the LGBTQ+ community would be great additions. I will be helping facilitate the day. Here is some more information:

In line with their 2019 Frederick Reads event, Frederick County Public Libraries will host a Human Library where members of the community are invited to meet with others and discuss their life experiences.
What is a Human Library?

A Human Library provides an opportunity for people to talk to other people, people they do not know, with different life experiences in a safe, non-judgmental environment. The goal of a Human Library is to expand how we see our neighbors and increase an understanding of our entire community.

Human Library is a worldwide movement that began in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2000. Human Libraries have taken place in over 80 countries. The motto of the Human Library movement is to “unjudge someone”.

How does it work?

A Human Library features individuals -“books” – who are willing to meet one on one with another person and speak openly about their life. Visitors to the event select which “books” (people) they would like to have a conversation with. They select from a list providing basic information about each book. Attendees can sign up to speak with one person or several, as time allows. The conversations are private. Attendees should not feel that any question they ask is silly.

The link to apply to be a “human book” is https://www.fcpl.org/frederick-county-public-libraries-human-library-book-application.

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

WHEN: April 15, 2018 at 5 p.m.

WHERE: St. Paul’s UCC  at the corner of Bond & Green Sts. in Westminster
