Taking Pride Online During the Pandemic

Looking for ways to keep the conversation going about LGBTQ+ issues with your ERG, community group, or PFLAG chapter? Welcome to Something to Talk About, a monthly series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about LGBTQ+ issues. Each month we’ll offer an article on LGBTQ+ topics and suggest a few questions you can use to lead a discussion.

We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, April 9. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Have you participated in any LGBTQ+ focused events that have transitioned to digital platforms over the past few weeks? If so, was the focus of the event for support, socializing, or education? If not, is there anything in particular that has kept you from participating?
  2. In your opinion, will these new digital platforms and virtual meeting spaces continue after social distancing mandates and stay-at-home orders? Why or why not?
  3. Is there anything that concerns you about LGBTQ+ organizations going virtual? What do you think members of the LGBTQ+ and ally community to alleviate those concerns?
