We meet the first Monday of every month to provide support for lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender people and their parents and family. We provide support for LGBTQ people who are seeking support with coming out and parents who are dealing with being come out to. A trained facilitator leads each small group of about 8-10 people for an hour and a half of support. Come support and be supported! You do not have to say anything during the meeting. You can just sit and listen as others share.

Time : 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Where: Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta (Room 209/210), 1605 Interstate -85 Frontage Rd, Atlanta, GA 30329
Directions to this location can be a little tricky, so we recommend using the link above and then printing out your directions. Watch the video below. This is if you are coming from North Druid Hills Rd away from Decatur and towards Buckhead. The video starts when crossing the McDonalds on N. Druid Hills. In the winter months, we usually have a lit sign that says PFLAG.

The entrance to the parking lot is situated on the I-85 northbound access road between N. Druid Hills Rd and Clairmont Rd. Take the access road/ramp to I-85N from North Druid Hills Rd and bear right to stay on the access road. You will pass by Guitar Center, TRANE, ASHRAE and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta on your right. You will see a sign for Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta (UUCA). During the winter months we have a flashing sign as it can be very dark. Turn right into the parking lot and proceed up the stairs to the glass doors. You will find us in rooms 209/210.
If you miss the turn into UUCA and get to Cliff Valley Way you have gone too far. Hang a right on Cliff Valley Way, a right on Briarcliff Rd and a right on N. Druid Hills Rd and come down the access road again.

So, a family member or friend has just “come out” to you as a gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender person. Some people may be able to take this news in stride.
