Support Meetings Format Update — In-Person Portions Canceled; Back to Zoom Only

With the recent nationwide spike in Covid cases, we've decided to postpone our plans for hybrid meetings until March at the earliest. Meanwhile, we'll continue hosting peer support meetings remotely by Zoom. To join a meeting, email your request for a Zoom link to info@pflagsanjose.org, or leave a message at (408) 270-8182.

Please do not go to the San Mateo County Pride Center for our meetings.


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!
