Becky is a Prineville native, mother of three, and grandmother of three. She has been a home based licensed child care provider for 25+ years. After her son came out as gay at age 18, she quickly found her way on the PFLAG Central Oregon board. She served as the President for 10 years and now serves as Vice-President. She was also the President/Chair of PFLAG’s Oregon State Council for three years. She was the first person east of the Cascade Mountains to do so.Becky has been actively involved in getting laws passed to protect the freedom of LGBTQ folks in Oregon and in the nation. In 2007, she was invited by Basic Rights Oregon to be the first testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Oregon Equality Act (SB2) which was passed by our Oregon Legislature. The Oregon Equality Act makes it illegal to fire a good employee, evict a good tenant, or refuse a patron at a restaurant just because that person is gay or transgender.
She has been a passionate activist for marriage equality and was thrilled when her son was able to legally marry on the eve of the SCOTUS decision in June, 2015, to make marriage equality available to all. Adam and Michael are now parents to sweet Emery who attends most PFLAG meetings and brings lots of smiles!
Becky is available for one-on-one meetings with other parents who might be struggling with their child’s sexual orientation. Contact her at: [email protected]
