Board Meeting (open) @ Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains

PFLAG Board of Directors meet on the third Tuesday of each month. We invite all who may be interested to please join the Board at open meetings. You too may participate with PFLAG moving equality forward in Nevada County. Advocacy is a big part of the mission of PFLAG, with members and supporters working to achieve LGBTQ+ equality through changing hearts, minds, and laws. We work at the community level, at the city and state level, to effect change so that people who are LGBTQ are safe and equal in their communities.

The PFLAG Nevada County Chapter needs needs you!

Our local chapter accomplishes broad-reaching community engagement yet our capacity to fulfill falls shy of a greater potential that our community needs and deserves. Your skills and energy can contribute in making our chapter stronger and even more effective. This includes parents, family, friends, allies including the LGBTQ community as our strength is in our diversity.

Should you have any question, or for more information, please contact Marilyn C at mobile phone (240) 260-1810.

National Coming Out Day
Oct 11 all-day
National Coming Out Day

National Coming Out Day is an annual LGBTQ awareness day observed on October 11 (and October 12 in some parts of the world).

Founded in the United States in 1988, the initial idea was grounded in the feminist and gay liberation spirit of a most basic form of activism, that being voluntary self-disclosure as a lesbian, gay, or bisexual sexual orientation, and also transgender, genderqueer, or other non-mainstream gender identity, in other words, coming out to family, friends and colleagues, and living life openly.

Enculturated and normalized homophobia thrives in an atmosphere of silence and ignorance. Therefore, once people become aware that they have loved ones who are LGBTQ, they are far less likely to maintain homophobic or oppressive behaviors.
