Downetime of GAPIMNY and API Project of PFLAG NYC to bring you a safe space to share and discuss the issue of coming-out. Members from Q-Wave and SALGA will also be participating.
There will be a number of parents that will be sharing their thoughts about how they moved from fear, shame and sadness to unconditionally loving their queer children. There will also be API queer community members to share their own coming out experience, whether it is to themselves or to those around them.
A small group discussion will follow where individuals will have a chance to ask questions, share experiences, or just sit and listen to the thoughts and concerns of others. We hope all participants will walk away with better understanding, increased awareness, deeper compassion and greater courageous to connect with those they love.
