PFLAG MISSION STATEMENT

PFLAG promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through:

  • Support, to cope with an adverse society;
  • Education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and
  • Advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights.

PFLAG provides opportunity to dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identify, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.

If you need help, please call our hotline at (520) 360-3795 or e-mail us at pflagtuc@pflagtucson.org.  We will connect you with a PFLAG member who has been where you are and who understands.  You may download the PFLAG Tucson pamphlet here.

SUPPORT MEETINGS

PFLAG Tucson support meetings are held on the first Wednesday evening of every month from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the Ward VI City Council Offices at 3202 E. 1st Street.  Click here for more detailed directions and a location map.  For our schedule, see below.  Please call our help line (360-3795) or send us an e-mail message (pflagtuc@pflagtucson.org) if you want or need immediate support.

UPCOMING EVENTS

  • December 7 PFLAG Support Meeting.  Please join us at 7:00 pm at the Ward VI City Council Office at 3202 E. 1st Street on Wednesday, December 7, to view the continuation of the documentary "Trans."  We showed the first half of this film on November 5.  This film is one of the most insightful and moving portrayals of what it is to be transgender and will open your hearts and minds.  You can learn more about the film at http://transthemovie.com/.  The second part of the film is about 40 minutes long.. We will have discussion and support afterward. We hope you can join us.
     
  • Eon Youth Group Thanksgiving Meal.  This year's Thanksgiving meal for Eon will be on Wednesday, November 23, from 4:45 pm to 6:45 pm in the main conference room at the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation at 375 S. Euclid Avenue.  The “core” meal items (turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy, rolls, pumpkin pie, etc.) are covered by some funding available to Eon, so they are asking for potluck items that expand the menu, especially vegetable dishes, casseroles, salads, fresh whole or cut fruit, and fruit pies.
            People are encouraged to bring a dish and stay for the meal to show their support. Or they can bring a dish earlier if it doesn't need to be reheated (SAAF has no facilities for this)--just go in the main entrance and let the receptionist know they have food for the Eon Pride Meal. If people want to help but need other arrangements, they can call or email Jeana Butler at (520) 307-6177, respectall27@yahoo.com, and she will work something out.
     
  • Holiday Dinner for Southern Arizona Senior Pride.  PFLAG will joint-host a holiday potluck with Southern Arizona Senior Pride on Saturday, December 10, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm in the social hall at the Cornerstone Fellowship at 2902 North Geronimo (the social hall is actually on Laguna, one and one-half blocks west of First Street and one block south of Glenn).  Let's make this a joyous holiday occasion for everyone.  Please RSVP potluck items to pflagtuc@pflagtucson.org, 520-360-3795.
     
  • Holiday ConcertsReveille and Desert Voices holiday concerts are coming up, respectively, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 2, 3 and 4 at the Leo Rich Theater and December 9, 10 and 11 at St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church.  Reveille's Friday and Saturday evening concerts are at 7:30 pm, and the Saturday and Sunday matinee concerts are at 3:00 pm.  Desert Voices' Friday and Saturday concerts are at 7:00 pm, and the Sunday matinee concert is at 3:00 pm.  Reveille's theme this year is "Making Spirits Bright," and Desert Voices theme is "Hope for the Holidays."
