Something to Talk About Live is a discussion series for organizations looking for ways to keep the conversation going about LGBTQ+ and ally issues all year long.
Each week the Straight for Equality team at PFLAG National gets together to discuss a timely news article - focused on LGBTQ+ topics, intersectionality, diversity, inclusion and more - for 30 minutes, which is broadcast on a variety of social media platforms. They also offer the article and questions so that employee resource groups, community organizations, and PFLAG chapters can lead their own group discussions.
