Providing Support, Education & Advocacy to Parents, Families, Friends, Allies & Members of the LGBTQ Community
PFLAG Cape Cod: Out in the Community
A Holiday Message from PFLAG Cape Cod...
The holidays can be a difficult time for people in the LGBTQ+ community. Even when our immediate family is supportive - which is not always the case - relatives or others who gather can vary greatly in knowledge, understanding, and support. If you or someone you know is experiencing conflict or anxiety, please reach out to them in love and support. If you are experiencing challenges, please reach out to friends and allies for support. We all need support sometimes. If you want to talk outside of your circle of family and friends, you can reach out to many of us. Never forget you are worthy of love and support. We are here for you and want to stay part of your family now and always.
If you are in crisis and do not have anyone else, call/text my cell phone directly at 508-737-8514
Please know that there is always hope, and that you are never, ever alone.
Warmest wishes for the holiday season, Denise and everyone at PFLAG Cape Cod
Denise LaBarre, President, PFLAG Cape Cod
