Black Family Circle is PFLAG NYC’s group dedicated to families and individuals who identify as Black and who have lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) loved ones. It provides a warm and inviting space to gather virtually and find community.
In celebration of Women’s Month, this month’s gathering will be devoted to honoring Black women, Black mothers, and other Black women who are a part of the journey of supporting, accepting, and understanding LGTBQ+ folx. Protecting them as lions protect their cubs. Blessing them with life skills so they’re empowered to craft their own path. Providing them with love in the hope that they will live their truth unapologetically in a society that does not respect their humanity. So let’s hold space together as a collective where we can listen, learn and share the struggles and successes of Black womanhood. Let’s honor our allyship, advocacy, and activism in support of the lives and happiness of LGBTQ+ folx.
This group provides family-to-family support with a focus on the intersection of accepting an LGBTQ+ or same-gender loving (SLG) child and one’s experience as a member of the Black community. While the experiences of being Black in America vary tremendously, there are shared cultural factors that play a role in supporting a family’s well-being, resiliency, and understanding when a loved one comes out as LGBTQ+. Come into the Circle with us!
Black Family Circle meets online on the fourth Sunday of every month from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. ET.
