Meetings & Events

2018, November 21st. <NEXT month> A potluck on the night before Thanksgiving. We invite members of other groups in our community to join us and, of course, anyone who could be alone during this holiday. The meeting will be very "family-friendly" with games to play. Come even if you cannot bring more to the potluck than yourself (you are enough!). Please pass this invitation to friends.

2018, October 17th.  It isn't Halloween yet, but we will celebrate a bit of "Samhain"--a day in Scots and Irish culture we call "Halloween"--when "separate things mingle": Fall and winter, living bodies and spirits. Samhain is a "liminal" time, a time of transition. We will enjoy Scottish & Irish snacks, and photos of Scotland & Ireland by Havens Levitt. Be free, be creative! Maybe wear a disguise (costume), or green or tartan/plaid colors to celebrate transitions.

2018, September 19th. We began with snacks and socializing, then support and presentation.

2018 August 15th. A panel of students and teachers discussed ways to make schools safer for LGBTQ students. We began with support groups and followed with snacks and topical discussion.

2018, July 18th. As we did last year (in this time of possible summer monsoons), we enjoyed an INDOOR Picnic. PflagAbq provided the basics; participants brought food (favorites) to share. Fun! We hope to see you again next year too.

2018, June 20th. Our discussion focussed on family relationships after we watched a short documentary film, "Gay Siblings" (from a LOGO series).

2018, May 16th. Albuquerque PRIDE parade and festival happens in June, so we talked about it and PFLAGabq's role in the events. As always, we began our meeting with support and discussion.

2018, April 18th. Tre Brewbaker, Mr. International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA), and Priscilla Toya Bouvier, Miss New Mexico Gay Rodeo Association (NMGRA) spoke about IGRA/NMGRA and many of their personal experiences. Their talk began 8 PM; our PFLAG meeting started at 7 PM with support.

2018, March 21st. There was support, then an open discussion followed by a discussion focused on the topic of bisexuality.

2018, February 21st. We followed our usual schedule of support and discussion. We will also shared memories of Katherine Palmer as well as others who led our community toward freedom and pride.

"Today we remember Katherine Palmer. It is with heavy hearts that we inform our PFLAG family of her passing. Katherine was [a profound] influence on our organization and community for many years. We ask that our PFLAG family allow Katherine's partner space and time to heal at this time" (L.M.). We invite anyone who would like to remember Katherine with us to our February meeting on the 21st at 7pm.

2018, January 17th. -- After some chit chat, we watched The Laramie Project, a 97-minute film set in and around Laramie, Wyoming, filmed after the murder of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard. (The movie is an adaptation of a play by that name.)
