OUR MISSION

Indy PFLAG's next meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 8th at 6:30 p.m. at 2943 East 46th Street, Indianapolis (IYG)*.

 

NOTE:  This month's meeting will have a separate break-out support session for parents, family members, friends and allies of transgender people. This support time will be moderated by a member of Indianapolis PFLAG who is the mom of a transgender child.*  The goal of this break-out group is to provide support, education, resources, and an on-going discussion.

 

*We are not professionals. We will offer professional resources to anyone who requests them.

 

Our guest speaker will be businesswoman and author JJ Marie Gufreda. JJ is the President of GEI Inc. an Operations and Process Improvement Consulting Firm. She is the author of "Left-Hander in London: A Field Guide to Transgenders, Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals - In the Family, On the Job and In the Pew" as well as co-author for three business books. She is the President of the Indy Rainbow Chamber of Commerce. JJ is married with three children and a grandchild.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most recently, JJ has been performing a play, "Left-Hander in London: The Earthquake" that also takes the audience through her journey. Riddled with humor and peppered with Gufreda’s shocking obstacles, it’s another way to see just what it means when an ordinary Joe becomes a Jane. JJ has teamed up with a well-known entertainer, "Vanity Fair," recognized Judy Garland doppelganger, Kimberly Roberts, and took The Earthquake on the road, beginning in Toronto, Ontario during World Pride 2014!

 

Following a short refreshment break, we will have our Confidential Sharing Circle where participatns can share their stories and ask questions in a safe, confidential setting.

 

Please join us - all are welcome - parents and families of LGBT children, Straight Allies, and LGBT people! No one is made to feel he or she must speak--we all know the value of quiet listening. And no one who speaks is expected to reveal more than he or she cares to. But in the warm, supportive atmosphere, many find they can put troubling thoughts and fears into words for the first time, and receive reassurance, guidance, and just plain facts.
