Parents of LGBTQ+ children from Asian, Latinx, and African American backgrounds will share their stories of transforming parent’s fear, shame, and guilt into unconditional love and acceptance for their children and their broader LGBTQ+ communities.
Participants will discuss the challenges and successes in building acceptance in their family, extended families, and communities that have own unique historical, cultural, and language barrier challenges. Participants will also develop a deeper understanding of family dynamics, gain strategies, resources, and support to create stronger connections within their families and the LGBTQ+ communities they are part of or serve. Presented by the PFLAG National Board Diversity & Inclusion Committee. This includes Kelly Brooks-Hailey, Blanca Leos, Robert Marchman, Sung Tse, and Marilyn Willis.
