PFLAG Donates $15,000 to MGLCC

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2012 at 3:50 PM

The local Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) chapter is making a $15,000 donation to the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC) on Monday night. An open-to-the-public presentation ceremony begins at 6 p.m. at 892 S. Cooper.

The money will be used to support all of MGLCC programs and services, which are currently being utilized by around 4,500 MGLCC guests.

Earlier this year, PFLAG donated $5,000 to the center's counseling referral program, which pairs LGBT people with counselors who respect every individual regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

"For 40 glorious years, [PFLAG has] been educating, supporting and advocating for gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender persons worldwide. PFLAG is one of the oldest and most far-reaching gay rights organizations in the United States, with over 200,000 members and 350 local chapters. But the majority of the work done in the Memphis community to support the causes we are all championing is done by the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center," said PFLAG-Memphis treasurer Dee Billmeier.
