It was heartening to hear the president’s and vice president’s recent statements of support for marriage equality. It’s exciting that expressing support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population has become helpful to one’s political career. On the subject of LGBT marriage being equal under the law, minds often change slowly and uncomfortably while people sift through beliefs they may have held for many years. Any jump-start to this process is something for which to be thankful.
PFLAG is Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (and Bisexuals and Transgender). It’s a national support, education and advocacy organization for LGBT people, their families, friends and allies.
PFLAG is here in San Luis Obispo as well as in more than 350 other U.S. communities. If you’re interested, our next open board meeting is June 26 at 5:30 p.m., and our support group follows at 7 p.m. Both are held at the GALA Center, 1060 Palm St., San Luis Obispo.
