2018, July 18th. -- As we did last year (in this time of possible summer monsoons), we will enjoy an INDOOR Picnic. PflagAbq provides the basics; picnic participants can bring food to share as they wish. Always fun! We hope to see you again this year, or for the first time.

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.

"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.)
