Support Group Meeting, Tuesday December 9th, 6:45pm

Our next support group meeting is TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9th @ 6:45 PM at Trinity Commons (E22nd St & Prospect Ave). Lighted, secure parking is available.

Educational Option: "Bridegroom"

PFLAG Cleveland's monthly educational series features the film "Bridegroom." The session is offered as an alternative to our monthly support group meeting. Those interested in attending can join PFLAG Cleveland members in the main support group room just prior to the support group meeting.

Bridegroom chronicles the story of Shane Bitney Crone and his partner Thomas Lee "Tom" Bridegroom, who died in a tragic accident. After Bridegroom's death, Crone found himself cut off and deprived of any legal protection. The film tells the story of their 6-year-long relationship, and the struggles Crone faced after Bridegroom's death, including the family not allowing Crone to attend the funeral of his life partner.

Bridegroom premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and attracted further press coverage because its premiere screening at the festival was introduced by former President Bill Clinton.

The film won the 2014 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary and was shown at the last PFLAG National Convention. A positive review of the film was featured in our November PFLAG Newsletter.
