Fundraising Thank you!

Thank you so much for all of you who showed your support by joining us at Hamburger Mary’s for PFLAG Bingo!  It was a huge success!  We packed the house even though the weather was frightful and we competed with the Chiefs/Raider game!  Also, a huge shout out to everyone who contributed prizes to our event:  Bistro 303, Fashionista, Custom Climate, Rock & Run Brewery, KC Hopps, Chipotle, Phoenix Salon, Le Reve Nail Salon, several local artists, and many individuals.  Thank you to Hamburger Mary’s for making this event available to organizations!  And to Melinda Ryder and her staff for adding so much to our evening!  This type of community support allows PFLAG to have more impact and to better achieve our mission of providing support to LGBTQ individuals and their families!  Thank you!

Young Adult LGBT Books

“My son is an avid reader and sometimes reads several books a week. After he came out to me, I felt that it was important for him to read books that are inclusive and that include characters who are like him. These books have meant a lot to my son. He loves to talk to me about the books and how he connects to the characters and stories (or sometimes not at all!). His Dad and I will sometimes read the books, too, and we have even passed them on to others. Reading these books has given my son more confidence. I hope you enjoy these books as much as our family has.”
