2013 Programming, 1st Quarter
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 the first half of the meeting to support, and the second half to an educational or advocacy-related program.
Monday, Jan. 20, 7pm, Brewster PFLAG
Tuesday, Jan 28, 7pm, Falmouth PFLAG
Both meetings will include a screening of "BRIDEGROOM, A Love Story. Unequaled." "Bridegroom" is an award-winning documentary which tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship that was cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof. The story of what happened after this accidental death--of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized--is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality and human rights like no speech or lecture ever will.
Monday, Feb 17, 7pm, Brewster PFLAG
Tuesday, Feb 25, 7pm, Falmouth PFLAG
Both meetings will be SUPPORT
Monday March 17, 7pm, Brewster PFLAG

Both meetings: Staff from the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod will provide an update on HIV/AIDS, speak about the importance of screening, and discuss how to talk with loved ones about AIDS prevention and screening for sexual health.
Please join us for any or all of these meetings, held from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at First Parish UU Church, 1969 Main Street Brewster, and at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 840 Sandwich Road, E Falmouth. You will be welcomed warmly, listened to respectfully without judgment, and hopefully stimulated by the discussion. Your confidentiality is assured.
Help support the "Promise Place School" for homelessLGBTQ youth
For most of us, the holidays will be a very happy time with family and friends, but we have a very large population of homeless LGBTQ youth currently living on the streets with no hope of a joyous holiday season. Most homeless teen suicides happen during the holidays. PFLAG member Erica Kay Webster, founder of the Promise Place School, has a prayer for this holiday that by this time next year The Promise Place School will have enrolled 40 full-time permanent residential students. We can all help bring this goal to fruition by purchasing the T-shirt pictured below.
The shirts are being offered for a donation of $10.00 for students and $15.00 for adults. Please respond with your orders through email to firstname.lastname@example.org; include the quantity and sizes and your phone number to arrange delivery. In the event shipment is required, please add $2.99 for postage. For anyone wishing to sell shirts at your church, synagogue, functions, or group meetings, please contact Erica so she can order a quantity based on your projected need. There is a two week turnaround on all orders. Payment is to be made by check payable to THRIVE, the fiscal sponsor while awaiting their 501c3 nonprofit designation by the IRS. Checks may be sent to
