August 21 Provincetown
Please join PFLAG of Cape Cod and feel the love of the crowd as we march in this year’s Carnival Parade! We need people to help carry an 80-foot-long (very light weight!) rainbow flag along the two-mile parade route. We have a truck for our signs and for 6 or 7 people who need to ride. The parade begins at the Harbor Hotel, corner Snail Rd and Commercial St. at 3pm and ends at Franklin St. Walkers can return to the Hotel on the truck or a shuttle bus. We will be setting up and decorating the truck from 1pm. If you can commit, please email so we have a count; if you can come at the last minute, that's fine also.
PFLAG isn’t just for support; it’s also for education & advocacy! At most of our monthly meetings, whether in Brewster or Falmouth, we devote at least part of the meeting to support, and the remainder to an educational or advocacy-related program.
Brewster Meeting August 18, 7pm: Elizabeth McCliment and Erica Kay-Webster will speak about the horrendous conditions currently being experienced by LGBT persons in Tanzania. Elizabeth McCliment is a Professor of Health Science and a Board Member of the Foundation For International Justice, Inc. Erica Kay-Webster is the Founding Board Chair and CEO of the Foundation For International Justice and VP of PFLAG of Cape Cod. More information here.

Brewster Meetings: every third Monday from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at
First Parish UU Church, 1969 Main Street
Falmouth Meetings: every last Tuesday from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 840 Sandwich Road, E Falmouth.
Please join us. You will be welcomed warmly, listened to respectfully without judgment, and hopefully stimulated by the discussion. Your confidentiality is assured.
Support Group for Parents of Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming Children
Beginning September 21. Parents of transgender and gender-nonconforming youth (ages 2-21) share many of the issues of parents of lesbian and gay children. However, some of their concerns are specific to raising transgender and gender-nonconforming youth. Our newest support group will offer these parents the opportunity to share their stories, questions, and problem-solving experiences with other parents & relatives in a nonjudgemental and confidential place. The group will be led by a transgender woman who is an advocate for transgender youth and is a gender diversity trainer. For more information email Amy.
