A Pflag Founder Remembered: Adele Starr
Just as it would be impossible to tell the story of PFLAG without telling the story of founder Jeanne Manford, it would be impossible to tell the story of PFLAG National without telling the story of Adele Starr. So we chose today, December 10th, the 10th anniversary of her passing, to re-share it.Adele and her husband, Larry, founded PFLAG LA, and Adele subsequently became the first President of PFLAG National. There is no question that she and Jeanne Manford were a formidable team. Much like Jeanne, Adele was a mama lion, willing to do whatever it took not just to protect her own cubs, but all of the others who came her way. Adele, by all accounts from those who knew her, was a true force to be reckoned with.

What We Know Now: Updating Best Practices For Talking About Suicide & Lgbt Populations
The media coverage that took root in the aftermath of these deaths gave LGBT suicide unprecedented visibility and sparked long-overdue public conversation about suicide risk in LGBT communities. But a lot of what was being said about the suicides of young people known or believed to be gay was deeply concerning. The singular focus on bullying oversimplified the complex factors that can lead people to take their lives, and suicide was widely portrayed as an almost inevitable response to the rejection and abuse suffered by so many LGBT youth. Fears began to mount that the rampant publicity would lead other vulnerable LGBT young people to identify with the experiences of the suicide victims and copy their behavior.

Census : Supporting Parents Of Nonbinary Kids
As a parent of a nonbinary child, you work tirelessly to have your kids seen, respected, and supported in every avenue of their lives. And now, with a request to respond to the 2020 Censuss request to identify the sex of each individual in the house as either male or female, there is heightened anxiety, or even frustration and fury, for nonbinary, genderqueer, trans and other individuals for whom the binary is insufficient to capture their identity. For you parents of nonbinary kids, there is further frustration, as you work to support and uplift your child, while still knowing the need to be counted and recognized in the Census to ensure delivery of crucial services to support families for the next 10 years.

What Is Youre Mom Gay
Your mom gay is part of the BOFA spectrum of diseases. This disease is caused when someone has untreated Ligma that doesnt transfer into E-TMA. This disease causes the patient to say “Your mom gay”. When they say this, if nobody says “no u” within 5 seconds, everyone within a 5-mile radius loses their jobs, homes, dignity, or even life. But, if someone says no u, the patient has a 98.4% chance of dying. If the patient has untreated ligma and surpasses the your mom gay stage, they get the unstoppable “your mom gay lol” disease.
