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.
JUNE: (Brewster on June 15 & Falmouth on June 30) Amy & Sarah will review their June 12th Transgender Medicine Talk at Cape Cod Hospital and discuss next steps. Please come to provide your input as we talk about how to maximize the impact of our GALE Fund grant in educating the health care community about transgender people.
JULY: A screening of the award-winning film “Five Dances.” More descriptipon later.
ALSO: PFLAG field trip! Ride with us on Saturday, June 20th to Providence for RI PrideFest and the Illuminated Night Parade. PrideFest features an afternoon of free entertainment, vendor booths, Pride swag, food and more. The Illuminated Night Parade kicks off at sunset. (More info at www.prideri.com) We’ll march/ride with PFLAG Providence members, who are decorating a truck and purchasing signs and many illuminated items. Wear your PFLAG of Cape Cod t-shirt (or get one from Amy) and bring any candy you want to throw! We’ll leave from the Exit 6 Burger King lot at 3:00pm (with a stop at the Bourne Bridge if there’s interest) and return in the late evening. Please contact Amy if you’ll be joining us: email@example.com or 508-737-5832.
