Black LGBTQ+ Trailblazers

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 series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for EqualityTM 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, February 4. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!

Have feedback about how your conversation went? Let us know by emailing [email protected].

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Articles like this – that highlight the stories and impact of influential people throughout history who were also queer and Black – seem to pop up every February and June. How do you feel about that?

  2. How do you think your personal experiences and family history impacts the way articles and lists like this resonate with you? With that lens in mind – is there anyone you would add to this list?

  3. In your opinion, what can allies do to celebrate and elevate the influence of queer BIPOC all year long?
