Anne

July 1, 2016 – In light of the recent racist and homophobic attack in Orlando and as we celebrate Pride Festivities across most of North America, I felt Anne’s message was so important for all of us. It is this type of education and eye on the big picture that will eventually educate the world.

Anne is the president of the Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) chapter in Toronto, Ontario. She shares her experience as a parent of a lesbian and becoming a good ally and an activist for the LGBTQ people in her life and family.
