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. West Barnstable meetings are currently devoted to support.
January - February
Regular PFLAG meetings will be support only unless noted below.
Brewster, January 18: Observe Martin Luther King Day with us by viewing Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin, about the life and work of this gay “unknown” hero of the civil rights movement. Discussion and support to follow.
Falmouth, January 26: Dr. Nisha David, an Ob/Gyn physician, will speak about health risks and issues specific to the LGBT community. She will also discuss recommendations for disclosing your sexual orientation or gender identity to your physician. Support will follow.
Brewster, February 15: Do you know someone who identifies as genderqueer, bigender, agender, gender fluid, non-binary, androsexual? Margot Estabrook Stienstra, a Jungian psychotherapist and former teacher will explore how, in C.G. Jung’s model, archetypal energy affects gender fluidity, thus offering new perspective on current youth gender identity research findings. Support will follow.
