Speakers

We have a range of speakers available to speak on behalf of PFLAG, telling their stories and answering your questions.

Sharing Our Stories

Speaking out for acceptance, love, and understanding
Our speakers tell their personal stories about the coming out experience of their child or loved one and the effects this had on the family. Over the past years, our members have been invited to talk at several venues and have been part of zoom type meetings that were necessary at many high schools and combined counselor meetings.

As a ‘ Not for Profit Organization’ we rely on our memberships and donations to maintain the works of the organization. All members volunteer their time and energy to educate and support the gender-diverse community families.

The greatest message to share is the parents have done nothing wrong to find out how or why they have a homosexual child. In the telling of personal stories very often some people are shocked to learn how much the LGBTIQ person has suffered before they dare to tell their parents. No one wants to be rejected.
We are very happy and capable to provide speakers to groups who want to learn and understand more about homosexuality.
If you would like a visit by one of our volunteer speakers to your group or business, please consider giving PFLAG a donation for this service. We are a registered charity and receive no government capital or recurrent funding. We rely totally on donations to maintain our organization. Please use the banking details on this website under “Donations”
In 2015 PFLAG completed 67 representations which did not include scheduled meetings of various committees.

At all these representations PFLAG engaged with members of the wider community by telling our stories at high schools,

 

We were invited to talk to staff at some banks, addressed the GLLOs at the Goulburn Police Academy, invited to be a member of the Surry Hills Police Community Engagement Committee, and participated in IDAHOT in The Blue Mountains, Parramatta, and Penrith.

PFLAG has provided talks to many institutions, corporations, banks providing support to those organizations wanting to be more inclusive for their staff including the GLLOs at the Goulburn Police Academy, and various area divisions. We are a member of the Surry Hills Police Community Engagement Committee and participate in and support the Blue Mountains, Parramatta, and Penrith Council with their IDAHOBIT, the International Day Against LGBTIQA+ Discrimination activities.

As a ‘ Not for Profit Organization’ we rely on our memberships and donations to maintain the works of the organization. All members volunteer their time and energy to educate and support the gender-diverse community families.
