Each year PFLAG Tucson participates in several community events, and this is a record of some of the things that we do.


PFLAG SUPPORT MEETINGS
PFLAG holds its monthly support meetings on the first Wednesday evening of each month at 7:00 pm at the Ward VI City Council Office at 3202 E. 1st Street.  We offer support not just for parents but for LGBT people themselves and their friends and allies.  The heart of our support meetings is shared experience, which helps all of us grow and adjust to our gay family members and friends.


ANNUAL COUPLE'S CELEBRATION
Every February, PFLAG hosts Tucson's LGBT couples with a Valentine's Day celebration.  In sharing their life stories and how they met, these couples enrich all or us and make all of us realize that these relationships are like any other, filled with love and fulfillment and deserving of our society's full recognition.


PFLAG SCHOLARSHIP RECEPTIONS
In 2003, PFLAG Tucson initiated a scholarship program for LGBT high school seniors, undergraduates, and graduate students.  This has become one of our most successful programs, with PFLAG Tucson awarding more than $30,000 to outstanding students.  For more reception photos, follow this link.


PRIDE ON PARADE
Every October before the Pride in the Desert Festival, PFLAG marches in the annual Pride Parade.  While the rest of the country celebrates Pride Month in June, those of us in Tucson celebrate in October to escape the heat.  We welcome everyone to walk with us.


   

PRIDE IN THE DESERT FESTIVAL
Every October the LGBT community of southern Arizona sponsors its annual gay pride event.  Moved to October because of Tucson's torrid summer heat, this event draws thousands of LGBT members to a day of exchanging ideas and information and enjoying entertainment.  Each year PFLAG Tucson has a booth at the event to hand out materials and to reconnect with our many friends in the community


 

THANKSGIVING EON HARVEST DINNER
Each Thanksgiving PFLAG Tucson collaborates with Wingspan to prepare a Thanksgiving meal at Eon, Tucson's center for LGBT youth, to ensure that every young person has a welcoming place to go for Thanksgiving.  Elaine and Art Woodland (at the right) of PFLAG ready to enjoy the meal with Mark English of Wingspan and a Wingspan volunteer.


 

SENIOR PRIDE HOLIDAY DINNER
Each year at Christmas, PFLAG Tucson provides a holiday dinner for Tucson's LGBT seniors, collaborating with Wingspan's Senior Pride group.  Up to 50 people attend these gatherings.  For more photos of the dinner, follow this link.
