Long Beach Pride Parade - May 19th 2013
PFLAG is always met with a very warm welcome by the crowd at Pride. Many LGBTQ youth express their gratitude to those representing our local chapters stating thing like, "I wish my mom could be as wonderful and supportive as you!" Thanks for continuing to show your lovely faces, friendly smiles, and for giving out those needed hugs. LOVE WINS!
