Here’s your PFLAG update

 Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians & Gays – also known as PFLAG – generally meets on the fourth Monday of each month from 6:30 to 9pm at the Collingswood Public Library (771 Haddon Ave). Dr Justine Marie Shuey, an adjunct professor at Middlesex College and a teaching associate for the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, will serve as guest speaker at the May 23 meeting. A Doctor of Human Sexuality, Shuey is a board member of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. Following her presentation, Shuey will answer audience questions. A support group session will follow the presentation. PFLAG is made up of individuals who have come to terms with a gay/lesbian/bisexual/ transgendered family member as well as those who are seeking to better understand a friend or relative’s sexuality. No one is turned away or made to feel uncomfortable during a meeting. All questions are valid. Those who attend PFLAG meetings will be given the opportunity to engage in dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity. PFLAG’s goal is to increase tolerance for diversity.
