Attendees at the next PFLAG meeting will have a chance to join with local high school students to try “Walk the Line,” an activity that is an illustration of both the advantages, as well as disadvantages, each person has in society, a press release said. The meeting will be held on Monday, May 1, in the Fellowship Hall of First Presbyterian Church. Social time will begin at 6:45 p.m., followed by the meeting from 7 to 8 p.m. The church is located at 1051 Oak Ridge Turnpike in Oak Ridge.
The activity will be a practice run for a session at the up-coming Youth Pride Fest 2017 on Saturday, May 6. From noon to 6 p.m. activities are planned to celebrate the diversity of all youth and support LGBTQ Youth and their Friends and Allies. All middle and high school age youth are invited. No registration necessary. Come ready to have fun and make new friends, the press release said. To learn more, go online to youthpridefest.weebly.com.
The PFLAG mission is to provide opportunities for dialogue about sexual orientation, gender identities, and to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity, the press release said.
The Oak Ridge Chapter meets monthly, rotating the venue among local churches including First Presbyterian, First United Methodist, Grace Covenant, Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church, and the Jewish Congregation of Oak Ridge. The date, time, and location are announced in local media.
