Support Group Meeting, Tuesday January 13th, 6:45pm
Our next support group meeting is TUESDAY, JANUARY 13th @ 6:45 PM at Trinity Commons (E22nd St & Prospect Ave). Lighted, secure parking is available.
Educational Option: "Call Me Malcolm"
PFLAG Cleveland's monthly educational series features the film "Call Me Malcolm." 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.
Call Me Malcolm is an amazing story of the human spirit and God's spirit, and the liberating struggle to realize and express with confidence the marvelous gift of one's truest sense of self. As Malcolm shares his own story and through the stories of others we meet, Call Me Malcolm offers us a glimpse into the real lives of real people who are transgender. But it is only a glimpse. There are many stories to be told and Malcolm helps us make connections to our own stories, encouraging us to share them. That can seem daunting in a culture which has done more to heap shame on persons who identify as transgender. The good news of Malcolm's story is the way in which shame and fear are overcome by grace, compassion and knowledge. Viewers cannot help but come to a deeper understanding of faith, love, and gender identity, and by doing so, arrive at a deeper understanding of their own journey.
