Welcome to Talking Inclusively, a monthly series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about intersectionality, LGBTQ issues, inclusion and more! Each month we’ll offer an article on diverse topics and suggest a few questions that you can use to lead a discussion focused on how we can make space that is more welcoming to everyone.
Have feedback about how your conversation went? Run across an article you’d like us to consider? Let us know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Questions for Discussion:
- What did you learn from this article?
- How can we ensure that intersectional figures are celebrated throughout the year as a part of Black History, Women’s History, and LGBTQ History month?
- Have you ever felt as if you had to leave one part of your identity behind to be embraced in spaces that were important to you like Pat Parker describes? If so, what was that experience like for you?
