PFLAG loves movies – and the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival

Come join us and PFLAG Bellevue (we're co-sponsors) at the festival to watch "Family Ties Short Program" on Saturday, Oct. 19. The festival folks describe the film like this:

"When it comes to drama, families sure know how to dish it out. From coming out to planning weddings, the film 'Family Ties Short Program' shows families all have something in common: each other."

Now in its 19th year, the festival is the largest event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, showcasing the latest and greatest in queer film, from major motion picture premieres to independent work from emerging talents. The festival, which runs Oct. 9-19, provides unique opportunities for visiting and local filmmakers to engage with audiences and interact with over 10,000 attendees.

Bring your friends and family on Oct. 19 and stop by the PFLAG table to say hi.

Where: AMC Pacific Place, downtown Seattle When: 2:45 p.m., Oct. 19 For tickets, click here.

Seattle Pride 2014

It is that time again for the Seattle Pride Parade and PFLAG is excited to be part of the parade. We hope to see lots of you who will want to march with us. Everyone is welcome in our contingent and we have all kinds of things that you can do. If you just want to march (i.e. walk) with us that is fine, but we have signs to carry, stickers to hand out and smiles and hugs to share. This is an incredibly fun experience to be a part of and PFLAG gets a lot of love from the crowd. Here are some of the details about where to find us on Sunday morning.

1. When - Arrive between 9:20 a.m. and 10:20 a.m. on Sunday morning.
2. Where - We will be in position 22 between University and Seneca streets on 4th avenue. If you want to use your GPS to try and find our general area, type in the “Purple Café” in downtown Seattle and it will get you to the right block. We will be somewhere on that street, just look for our purple shirts.
3. Who - When you arrive, ask for Humberto Romero and he will help you get situated.
4. What - We would love to have you wear your purple PFLAG shirts for the parade. If you don’t have one already, you can wear any purple t-shirt or get one from us for a suggested donation of $15. IF you have a sign that you would like to carry, please bring it and we have rarely ever said “no” to a sign. We encourage signs from other chapters that tells about their location.

Our theme this year is “PFLAG is_____” and we have a series of 4 large signs that lets the spectators know that PFLAG is for everyone and we welcome everybody to support meetings and the organization.

We are really excited to have you join us this year.

PFLAG hugs, Humberto Romero
