Support Meetings Format Update — All meetings are Zoom-only for now

Earlier this year we started offering one of our support group meetings -- the "General/Support for All" meeting held every 2nd Monday of the month -- in hybrid format. However, the venue we were using for the in-person portion of that meeting is temporarily unavailable. Consequently all meetings, including the 2nd-Monday meeting, will be Zoom-only for at least the next month or two.

To join any meeting, please request a Zoom link/invitation by sending a brief note to info@pflagsanjose.org, or by leaving a voice message (including your phone number or email address) at (408) 270-8182.

New API Support Group

We are beginning a monthly peer support group for parents, family members, allies, and LGBTQ+ individuals with Asian, Pacific Islander, or South Asian heritage. Meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m., starting December 21, 2021. We seek to form a loving community of compassionate and welcoming individuals, providing a safe space to converse, listen, or observe in a group of fellow Asian-Americans.

Like our other support meetings, this one will be remote for now. To join, request a Zoom link/invitation by sending a brief note to info@pflagsanjose.org, or by leaving a voice message (including your phone number or email address) at (408) 270-8182.


More Online Support for API Communities

Two other PFLAG chapters in California now host support groups specifically for members of the Asian or Pacific Islander communities who have LGBTQ+ loved ones. And, like most support groups, they've moved online since the epidemic started last year; that means anyone can participate, regardless of location!
