From time to time we share the essays and letters of guest bloggers. This week, we are pleased to publish another post from Michelle Dooley. Michelle is Vice President of PFLAG San Antonio and we met her in person for the first time this past October at the PFLAG national conference in Portland, OR. She is also the mother of Matt Dooley. Happy Mother’s Day Michelle, and all the wonderful PFLAG moms out there!
Mom and I just returned to Seattle after attending the PFLAG national convention this weekend in Portland, OR. On the Bolt bus down on Friday, Mom wrote about the important role that PFLAG played for her and my dad shortly after I came out, and I added my two cents about why I loved PFLAG when I came out and why I am a member of Bellevue-Eastside PFLAG today. Enjoy! ~Christopher
Linda writes to Christopher on Father’s Day about the importance of vocal activism as well as how “telling the truth has it’s own important activism.”
