A new group with a focus on supporting families of South Asian origin with LGBTQ children is starting in 2016. The South Asian community (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan) often have coming out experiences that do not fit the western paradigm. In some cases, South Asian families may not even be aware of what being lesbian, gay, bi or transgender even means. These meetings will be held in public libraries and if there is interest, we will make this a regular meeting, possibly under the umbrella of PFLAG. Please spread the word if you know someone who might benefit from these meetings. Allies are welcome to attend.

Please email southasianpflagatl@gmail.com for more information and if you would like to attend.
