PFLAG Cedar Rapids

Good News:

Congrats to all the graduates in Linn County and especially to our scholarship winners.

PRIDE in Linn County will be held July 8, 2017 from Noon-4 pm at New Bo Market.  http://crpridefest.com/

Remember there is power in community.  We are stronger together, families, parents, friends, gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, non-binary, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning and allies.  Sexuality and gender exists on a spectrum throughout the world regardless of ethnicity, class, religions, gender, socioeconomic condition, or education.  If someone comes out to you, here are a couple of things which you can say right away:  “I am honored you told me. You know I love you. We can learn more about that as we live.”

Join us for one of our confidential support groups.

  1. PFLAG support is geared towards individuals, family, friends and allies of gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, transgender and questioning people. We meet at 2nd Thursday at 7:00pm – 9:00 pm. Check the calendar and Facebook for any changes due to weather or schedule glitches.

  2. Transformations Cedar Rapids support is geared towards individuals, family, friends and allies of transgender individuals. This group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday at 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Check the calendar and Facebook for any changes due to weather or schedule glitches

Our Transformation group will meet June 22 at Grant Wood AEA (GWAEA).

IN July GWAEA rooms will undergo construction.  Therefore, both PFLAG and Transformations will meet at 1725 Boyson Rd Hiawatha, IA 52233 in Karma Coffee Café where the owner has agreed to let us meet after regular business hours.  Meetings are confidential and safe.
