About the movie “Love, Simon”, local PFLAG board member, CM Hall says, “If you’re a fan of love and people and gay kids coming out with support, please, please go see the movie, “Love, Simon”. It features great actors and music. It feels like the teen movie of the era but appeals to the masses. It is supremely wonderful. So heartwarming, affirming and cathartic. Be sure to pick up extra napkins at concessions. You’ll need ’em.”
Research shows that LGBT students who receive support from their families, schools and communities are able to survive the stress and challenges far better than students who don’t have that support.
Uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) with families, friends, and allies, PFLAG is committed to advancing equality through its mission of support, education, and advocacy.
PFLAG provides factual and helpful information and personal connections for families whose children or teens believe they may be among the minority in gender identity or sexual orientation. For more information, call 541-265-7194.
