Having Those Difficult Discussions About Relationships with Dr. Hannah Ellerkamp

PFLAG NYC’s Support Services will provide two free virtual workshops with special guest and clinical psychologist, Dr. Hannah Ellerkamp. November's workshop will focus on how to have hard conversations with LGBTQIA+ youth related to bodies, sex, intimacy, online safety, and relationships. Parents/caregivers and families are undoubtedly concerned about their children’s safety and exposure to all types of relationships. If you are wondering how to navigate conversations around bodies, sex, intimacy, online safety and relationships with your 13+ tween, teen, and young adult lgbtqa+ loved one, we invite you to attend our virtual workshop. This is a mindful and important way to build your relationship and provide them with some life skills. We want to ensure that you can feel free to ask, share, and learn in a safe, non judgemental space so we ask that you attend the workshop without your child and that you’re in a location where you have privacy. These workshops are good for parents, families, and caregivers of tweens, teens, and young adults (13+). Learn more and register.

Loving Elders Support Group

The theme for this month will be "lead with the wisdom of your heart." Elders give children the promise of community, continuity, and consciousness of self. They are the spiritual guides that keep culture and personal history alive in the hearts of the young. They nurture the love and understanding that can then withstand the difficulties and appreciate the beauty of our shared walk through life. We love and cherish our grandchildren and may be the most accepting because so many unimportant things are of no concern to us anymore compared to our precious children. If you identify as a grandparent or an intergenerational influence in the life of an LGBTQ+ person join us for the launch of our Loving Elders Support Group. We’ll meet the first Monday of each month from 7:00 - 8:30 pm ET. Learn more and register.
