Stonewall. Rainbow flags. Pink triangles. Lavender lambdas. Pink, blue, and white banners. Pride parades. Disco. Fire Island, WeHo, and Dupont Circle. Harvey, Audre, Marsha, Sylvester, and even Gaga. PFLAG and ACT UP. What does it all mean? And why is it important for us to know and preserve? This June, join PFLAG National to learn more about LGBTQ+ history and culture in the US!

In this session you’ll:

  • Discuss some of the reasons that understanding more about LGBTQ+ history and culture is so important for activists and advocates;

  • Learn more about the people, places, signs, and symbols that are commonly associated with LGBTQ+ culture here in the US and worldwide;

  • Have some fun as we discuss the long-term and ongoing influence the LGBTQ+ community has had, and continues to have, on popular culture;

  • Consider the ways that LGBTQ history and culture can be integrated into your PFLAG chapter’s support, education, and advocacy efforts.
