Parent 2 Parent Coffee (via Zoom)

We would love to welcome you to our parent-to-parent coffee!
This informal gathering allows us as parents of transgender, gender diverse and gender questioning children to connect. This is a parent run event, open only to parents and direct caregivers of these children. We respect each other's confidentiality and the fact that we may be in different stages of this journey. We all have felt very alone and confused at times, and have found that connecting with other parents of gender diverse children to be a great relief.

Please email themamabearmail@gmail.com for details.

Join us online for a ZOOM get together once a month at 7:00 pm.

*The teen/young adult meetings are every 2 weeks, and coincide with the parent meetings once a month. The group is called F.R.O.G. (Friends Regardless of Gender) and range from 13-26 years old. “We are gender diverse friends who hang out and also discuss topics about being transgender & gender diverse to make each other feel more seen and accepted with peers like ourselves.”

PFLAG Connects: Communities

Welcome! PFLAG Connects: Communities aim to provide a space where people with shared experiences can connect each month in virtual support settings. Our first meetings will gather people of Latino, Black/African-American, and Asian-American & Pacific Islander backgrounds to connect with each other in a safe online environment. You can ask questions and learn from others who have been through similar experiences. Maybe a loved one has recently told you their sexual orientation or gender identity is different from what you assumed. Maybe you're looking to learn how other people have navigated the journey. Maybe you're looking for a space where you can find yourself reflected in the shared experiences of others. If this sounds like you,
welcome to the community!

 

If you have any questions about our programs or would like to get involved, please don't hesitate to contact us!
