All PFLAG NYC support meetings are taking place online via Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even on Zoom, we are glad that our community is continuing to offer mutual support, share information, and find solidarity.
We look forward to the day that we can return to having in-person meetings, but we’re also glad that meeting online has given us the flexibility to create a range of new groups for different audiences. Black Family Circle, lunchtime groups, and most recently a new group for dads are all part of our online offerings. If you have any questions about the group that is the best fir for you, please email us at email@example.com or call 646-809-4099.
The monthly schedule of online meetings and registration info is below. You can go directly to the registration form here.
