PFLAG is the original ally organization, and PFLAG Blue Ridge encourages parents, families, friends, and allies to show support of LGBTQ loved ones this Saturday by attending the Charlottesville Pride Festival.
The Pride Fest will be held in Lee Park from 11am-7pm, and will feature activities and vendors for the entire family.
We’d love to have you stop by our booth to learn more about our work in education, support, and advocacy. If you are the parent or caregiver of a gender non-conforming youth, we’d love to talk with you about our monthly support group designated for families of transgender individuals.
We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones this Saturday as we show our pride and support!
PFLAG Blue Ridge has opened a CafePress store featuring t-shirts, buttons, stickers, and other merchandise with the PFLAG Blue Ridge logo. This will allow the PFLAG Blue Ridge board members the opportunity to purchase similar items for a cohesive look as we participate in walks, parades, and festivals, and will allow chapter members and members of the public to support the work of our all-volunteer organization while helping to promote our cause.
All proceeds from the purchases of these items go directly to the PFLAG Blue Ridge mission of support, education, and advocacy in the following ways: financing materials and refreshments for support group meetings; covering the cost of materials offered to attendees at festivals; funding expenses for educational workshops, films, and guest speaker events; paying for web hosting and post office box rental; and purchasing items for our lending library.
Thank you for your support of the work that we are doing. If you’d like to donate to PFLAG Blue Ridge or become a chapter member, please visit our website to learn more!
