Meeting Information

PFLAG Central Oregon meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Where:  Nativity Lutheran Church

60850 Brosterhous Rd., Bend

6:30 PM (6:15 for library usage and refreshments)

Nativity Lutheran Church is a GLBT friendly and welcoming church. 

Meetings are confidential and include introductions, "PFLAG Moments" where people share if they have had encounters where they were able to support someone, educate someone about gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender issues or advocates on behalf of our GLBT loved ones.  We usually have a social event, a speaker or a topic for the evening and occasionally we have break-out support groups depending on the need.  We try to make everyone feel welcome whether you are a parent who has just learned their child is gay or you are a glbt person yourself who is struggling with your identity or coming out. Feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable in.  We're a relaxed group and accept people as they are!  Please join us!

We also have parents who are willing to meet with other parents one on one if that is more to your comfort level.  Please call our infoline or e-mail us.

Speaker:  Jacob Fain

After DOMA & LGBT Finances

You are invited to hear local Financial Advisor, Jacob Fain from Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, discuss this important topic.  He will also answer questions.
