What’s Your Story? Learn How to Tell it at PFLAG March 11
PFLAG welcomes storytelling expert Dr. Jennifer Yocum to speak at its regular meeting on Monday, March 11, at Florence United Methodist Church. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
Dr. Yocum, whose doctoral specialty was storytelling, recently co-hosted a “Story Bridge” at the Laughing Crab in Old Town and was keynote speaker at Florence’s 5-church Ecumenical Spiritual Renewal in February. An accomplished story-teller herself, she shares her insights into the power of story-telling to bridge divides between people, something especially important to folks in the LGBTQ+ spectrum who are hesitant to tell their stories, even to potential allies.
PFLAG meetings are always free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served. Mark your calendar and bring a friend. Please be advised that PFLAG’s regular meeting night continues to be the second MONDAY of the month.
Membership is not required to be active in the group, but if you’d like to join, dues ($30 per year) are a way of continuing to provide support and education in the community and linking you to the national organization. All donations, including dues, are tax-deductible.
