Support Meetings Format Update — 2nd Monday Going Hybrid in San Mateo

Now that the worst of the Covid-19 epidemic appears to be behind us here in California, some of our traditional in-person venues are gradually reopening. Starting in March, our 2nd-Monday "General/Support for All" group will meet in a combined remote/in-person "hybrid" format at the Pride Center in San Mateo:

2nd Monday every month, 7:00 p.m.
San Mateo County Pride Center
1021 S. El Camino Real
San Mateo, CA 94402
(parking in rear via 11th Ave.)

To join remotely by Zoom teleconference, please request a link at, or leave a message at (408) 270-8182, as before.

We hope to expand this format to more of our meetings soon, but for now all of our other monthly peer support meetings continue to meet only by Zoom teleconference. Follow the instructions above to receive a link/invitation.

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, 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!
