PFLAG Central Oregon meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
Where: Nativity Lutheran Church
60850 Brosterhous Rd., Bend
6:30 PM (6:15 for library usage and refreshments)
This facility is ADA accessible.
Nativity Lutheran Church is LGBTQ friendly and a very welcoming location.
Meetings are confidential and include introductions, "PFLAG Moments" where people share if they have had encounters where they were able to support someone, educate someone about gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender issues or advocates on behalf of our LGBTQ loved ones. We usually have a social event, a speaker or a topic for the evening and occasionally we have break-out support groups depending on the need. We try to make everyone feel welcome whether you are a parent, who has just learned their child is gay or you are a LGBTQ person yourself who is struggling with your identity or coming out. Feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable in. We're a relaxed group and accept people as they are! Please join us!
We also have parents who are willing to meet with other parents one on one if that is more to your comfort level.
Please call our Infoline at 541-728-3843 or e-mail us at [email protected] .
April 11 (Tuesday) - Bend Location
Movie Night: For the Bible Tells Me So
Bring Movie Snacks/Drinks
Delving into values of the religious right and the accompanying homophobia, "For the Bible Tells Me So" focuses on how conservative Christians' interpretation of the Bible is commonly used as a way to deny homosexuals equal rights. Following five families with an openly gay son or daughter, director Daniel G. Karslake offers a firsthand look at how those in the Christian community with an out child are affected by the homophobic fervor. Karslake also interviews a number of religious leaders.
April 27 (Thursday) - Madras Location
