PFLAG Support Groups for parents and families of LGBTQ at SLCA in Atlanta

Sum13-GroupSupportWe meet on a Sunday afternoon on the third Sunday of every month at Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta. Parents and family who are struggling with the news of a loved one coming out and lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender persons are encouraged to attend our support group meetings. If you are lesbian, gay, bi or transgender and would like to come out to your friends and family, and are looking for ways to come out, this is an excellent place to get support and ideas that have worked for others. We often have a program or speaker from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. After our program, we have an hour of facilitated support groups. These meetings will run to 5pm. If we only have support groups (no speaker/program) our meeting ends at 4pm. In support groups, we share our stories but do not counsel. Trained facilitators moderate the discussion. Everything that is said within the group remains confidential.

When: Sunday, October 18, 2015 02:30 pm – 4:00pm (if support only) / 5:00pm (if starting with program)

Where: Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta
