August Discussion Topic: “Gender Identity”

A few months ago, PFLAG began hosting a discussion segment as part of its peer support meetings. We’ve talked about the inclusion of gays and lesbians in the 2010 census, the anti-gay adoption bill in the Arizona legislature, and the impact of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. All of these discussions have been interesting and enlightening for PFLAG members and guests alike. PFLAG meetings are open to the entire community, so we hope you’ll join us for one of our upcoming discussions.

The topic for August is “Gender Identity,” which will be facilitated by Erica, a long-time community activist and transgender advocate. Erica (aka Frank, aka Sister Frankly Truself) is lucky enough to have a PFLAG Mom in Prescott and shares this invitation with the community: “I spend my workdays in Phoenix at the state health department working on HIV prevention. Outside of work, I’m a community activist in the GLBTQ world. My interest in gender identity has led to both academic knowledge and

personal experience that I look forward to sharing with the group. Please join me for a broad discussion of such things as pronouns, public restrooms, “passing,” and what it’s like to be at more than one point on the gender continuum. Male? Female? Other? Let’s talk!” We hope you can drop in for this engaging discussion.

Peer support continues to be offered at each PFLAG meeting for anyone who needs it. All meetings are confidential and are facilitated by a member of the PFLAG steering committee. If you’d like more information on the peer support process or are in need of one-on-one PFLAG support, please call the Pride Center at (928) 445-8800 or email

Arizona @ Large

Tuscon! FREE Screening of 9500 Liberty Arizona's SB 1070 has been tried once before, and it was repealed after two months of implementation due to the efforts of a bi-partisan coalition of business owners, law enforcement leaders, the faith community, and some courageous stay-at-home moms. After a sold-out premiere and a successful six-week run in Phoenix, the award-winning documentary 9500 LIBERTY returns to Arizona for a series screenings, free and open to the public. **w/ Spanish subtitles!

*†Director Eric Byler will answer questions following the screening

SB 1070 de Arizona ya ha sido juzgada. Y falló. En el condado Prince William, Virginia, una ley que requiere la policía para verificar el estatus migratorio de personas a las

que había "causa probable" para sospechar que eran inmigrantes indocumentados entró en vigor en Marzo de 2008. Los ciudadanos se unieron para exigir que la ley fuera

rechazada en el enfrentamiento de costosas demandas legales y un impacto económico devastador. Con subtítulos en Español Para obtener más información visite, www.9500Liberty.com To RSVP, email the YWCA at rsvp@ywcatucson.org
