When a child comes out as LGBT, parents often jump into that very same closet themselves by not revealing to others that their child is LGBT. At the regularly scheduled general meeting of the Columbia-Howard County chapter of PFLAG on April 8, there will be a panel discussion presented by parents of LGBT children. The panel members will share their experiences of their own coming out to family and friends. Following the panel presentation, an open discussion of the parental coming out process will transpire.
The meeting takes place between 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the Owen Brown Interfaith Center, 7246 Cradlerock Way in Columbia. All meetings are free, confidential and open to the public. For more information visit pflagmd.org.
