From South Jersey Magazine:

LINDA MURPHY 
When Murphy’s eldest daughter came out as a lesbian after graduating from high school in 2005, she quickly sought out local support groups to help them both navigate this new chapter in their lives. She found none. So when PFLAG, a national nonprofit with 400 chapters across the country, established a local outfit in Collingswood she quickly became the group’s first president. “PFLAG has empowered me to go beyond acceptance, and instilled in me a sense of pride in my family and for the entire LGBTQ community,” Murphy says. The organization serves all of South Jersey, providing monthly support groups, information about local resources and outreach to those looking to be more informed on LGBTQ topics. “When we all stand together, in our uniqueness, with compassion as our guide, our world will be a better place."
