The House of Representatives voted on February 25th to pass the Equality Act! This bill would ban discrimination against people based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and would also substantially expand the areas to which those discrimination protections apply (for more information about the Equality Act, just follow this link.) The bill, already introduced in the Senate, now faces an uncertain future where an uphill battle for its passage is expected. Please take action NOW by emailing/tweeting your legislators using this simple form, and ask them to "Vote YES on the Equality Act". Let them know that as their constituent, and as a member and/or supporter of PFLAG, this legislation is critical and important to your family!
Fund-raising the bar!

PFLAG Cape Cod: OUT in the Community
"When parents and family members attend our PFLAG Cape Cod support meetings, I'm so often moved by the depth of love they have for their LGBTQ child or family member, and by their strong desire to better understand their loved ones experience. They often come to our meetings confused, anxious, and seeking support for themselves, and end up leaving better prepared to provide the very support their LGBTQ loved one needs.”
Joe Lima President, PFLAG Cape Cod
The 2021 fiscal year began October 1, 2020, so please read this letter from Joe Lima, President of PFLAG Cape Cod, reaching out to members and supporters of PFLAG Cape Cod encouraging them to join or renew their membership!
