Speaking Out — A Note from the President

Your New Chapter President

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am the current PFLAG-KC Chapter President.  I am a wife and the mother of five children, a fish and a dog.  I try to be a good person, neighbor and friend.  I love to cook.  I have always pretended to have eyes in the back of my head, but I have never had all the answers.

Shortly after my daughter came out, she found PFLAG for me.  And I am so glad she did.   PFLAG welcomed me with open arms.  PFLAG is a great source of support and information.  It helped me just knowing that others struggled with the same questions I had and I was able to get answers to those questions.  It was and continues to provide a sense of relief.

We have LBGTQ individuals, parents, siblings, grandparents and friends attend the meetings for support and to give support to the LBGTQ community.

One of the new booklets PFLAG National has available, “OUR CHILD” provides a section on terminology and definitions.  Having the proper language helps all of us feel more comfortable discussing these issues.   At PFLAG in addition to an extensive library, which also includes videos, we have literature available which may help you in your journey.

I look forward to learning about your journey in the coming year.
