Special Upcoming Event

With deepest gratitude, PFLAG Charlotte would like to thank the St. Peter's Catholic Church community, the multitude of faith communities, and individuals throughout Charlotte that have reached out in support of our upcoming visit by Sr. Jeannine Gramick.

The lack of acceptance and inclusion in many faith communities is one of the most difficult challenges facing LGBTQ people and their families. It is comforting to know that the long list of LGBT accepting faith communities here in Charlotte grows each day.

PFLAG Charlotte is proud to be part of a large family of organizations here in Charlotte dedicated to improving the lives of our Charlotte LGBTQ community through support, education, and advocacy. We are making a difference with the help of thoughtful citizens that believe, as we do, that equality and acceptance is essential to our thriving community.

We hope you will join us as we welcome Sr. Jeannine Gramick to Charlotte as she leads our conference titled, "Including LGBT People and Their Families In Faith Communities."

When: Saturday, May 16th
Gathering, coffee and pastries: 8:00 am
Conference: 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Where: Myers Park Baptist Church
Cost: Free of Charge

Keynote Speaker: Sister Jeannine Gramick, PhD, Roman Catholic nun, Co-Founder of New Ways Ministry, an organization advocating justice and inclusion for LGBT people and their families.
