PFLAG Parent Day

Tune in Sunday, July 23rd at 2pm ET/11am PT to celebrate and get inspired by the parenting people who show up for LGBTQ+ kids of all ages!

ABC7 Eyewitness News reporter Christiane Cordero, one of the broadcast world’s few openly lesbian reporters, will host PFLAG National’s special presentation of PFLAG Parent Day. Premiering on National Parent Day, the PFLAG Parent Day special is a celebration of the parenting people who lead with love in support of LGBTQ+ people of all ages.

PFLAG Parent Day, now in its third year, is a special event to celebrate LGBTQ+ affirming parents and all the people who fill a parenting role for LGBTQ+ kids of all ages. Follow the stories of families, advocates, educators, artists, and communities across the country who show up each day to fight for love and justice in their own backyards. The PFLAG Parent Day presentation—which will premiere on PFLAG National and ABC Owned Television Station streaming platforms—is produced by PFLAG National with support from the ABC Owned Television Stations. Philip D’Amour (2023 White House Correspondents Dinner, The Grio Awards) serves as Executive Producer.

In 2023, LGBTQ+ people and their families have faced an unprecedented volume of attacks—including threats to their lives, livelihoods, and civil rights—in every state across the country. Inspired by the same unconditional love that urged PFLAG founder Jeanne Manford and other parents to get off the curb and march alongside their LGBTQ+ loved ones 50 years ago, parenting people in 2023 are taking action and fighting back.

The special event will air on PFLAG National social channels, and as follows across eight ABC Owned Television Station platforms:
