Very sweet and touching story.....

This is a very touching story. This group has always been one of the most important part of any Gay Pride for me and now I know the story behind its beginning.

I was just reading about this earlier and watched the video.  Its always nice to learn new things.  i'm always struck on how things get started.   Sounds like a nice, wonderful lady.

I've always heard of PFLAG, but never knew the history behind it.

good deal.

I wasn't aware of the story either - how one person's love and commitment really made a difference.

thanks

We are so fortunate that this group already existed at the beginning of the AIDS crisis.  We were thrust from a "I'd rather my son be dead than gay" era to one where their wishes were coming true.  I remember one of her speeches shortly after Mortie died and indicated that she had to continue on in his memory.

What an incredible lady (as was her husband).
