This panel discussion will offer a unique experience to connect with LGBTQ personal stories in a casual, informative format. Trained volunteer speakers, who are members of the PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) Speakers Bureau (Long Beach chapter), which has been operating since 1978, will conduct the panel. The panels consist of an introduction of the PFLAG organization, followed by speakers (usually 3-4 people) sharing their brief personal stories. A portion of the presentation is devoted to a Q&A session for the audience. Lunch snacks will be served. Please RSVP to Sadie Sacks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
