Side by Side's Springtime Celebration
June 12, 2018:
New Meeting Location!
For over 20 years, PFLAG Richmond has been holding its Tuesday chapter meetings at Side By Side (formerly ROSMY). However, Side By Side now needs the space to accommodate the record attendance at its Tuesday youth support meetings. We hate to leave, but celebrate the fact that more LGBTQ teens are reaching out to Side By Side for support.
We are now meeting in the conference room at Diversity Richmond, located at 1407 Sherwood Avenue.
Anti-LGBTQ Hate Ad Rescinded
On April 10, the Richmond Times Dispatch published an ad placed by the Virginia Christian Alliance which called homosexuality “gross” and said the LGBTQ community and their allies were “showing a complete disregard for their lives” by supporting and taking part in the struggle for LGBTQ civil rights.
After a public outcry, the Times Dispatch has apologized for the ad and announced that proceeds from the ad would be donated to Diversity Richmond.
Trans Health Protections At Risk?
The Trump administration is reportedly targeting our transgender brethren with possible new health rules.
A recent New York Times article reported that the Trump administration is considering whether to roll back an Obama rule preventing doctors, hospitals and insurers from discriminating against transgender people. The administraton says it needs to change the rule because a Texas judge found parts of it violated religious freedom and rule-making laws.
