Go PFLAG Valdosta

I am really blown away and amazed at the kind of response that we have been able to generate within the community. We had our third meeting and gathering of like minded individuals; and with the addition of 1 person from Macon and 5 from the Albany PFLAG groups, our attendance soared to 28 individuals. We welcomed the visitors from Albany who were mostly parents with gay and lesbian children who were able to give our group a different perspective as they deal with being gay.

We had a room of family members, linked by a common goal; freely sharing stories, thoughts, advice and support for those who are facing difficult relationships with parents and friends.

Thank you again to the members of the University’s Gay/Straight Alliance who took the time away from studying to come share your thoughts and stories.
