Monday, October 3, at 6:30pm, PFLAG BROWNSVILLE will be having its monthly open meeting at the New York Deli off the Expressway in Brownsville. Our guest speaker will be Lidia Hernandez. She is a parent who will be telling her story of her son's coming out and how the family handled it. They say you don't know a man(or in this case, woman) until you have walked a mile in her shoes. She will be telling her story in Spanish for those of you who know someone who are interested in being a part of the organization but feel that there is a language barrier. PFLAG strives to meet the needs of a diverse population in Brownsville. Everyone is welcome and membership makes it possible to help others. Please consider attending.

Editor's note:

This new gay rights group (remember guys I am very old - in my time gay meant all of the groups so I continue to use the term - today you will see LGBT - lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and transexual - I'm old - gay it is) seems to have made headway in many ways.  It says a lot about the group that they have the New York Deli and Cobbleheads helping with these events.  It is my understanding more restaurants will be joining the list of gay friendly restaurants and businesses.

The smart people in the business community know and understand the gay community spends money at gay friendly businesses.  For me it is funny how the basis instinct of every capitalist is driving this movement forward  - profit.  of course the businesses which intially join the movement do it beacuse they truly understand the equality issue. 


The BV will continue that conversation tomorrow.  Unless there is really important breaking news, this is today's only post.  I think this post deserves to stand alone without other distractions.
