April 12 - A Sad Day

The last legal obstacle to the Trump administration ban on transgender individuals serving in the military has fallen, and the administration plans to begin enforcing the ban as of April 12.  In January, the U.S. Supreme Court lifted two of the injunctions preventing the ban from taking effect and the last remaining preliminary injunction has now been dissolved.  

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution condemning the ban, calling it "unfair discrimination" and "harmful to national security".   The measure is not expected to be taken
up in the Senate

Support Your Transgender Child

Having a child come out as transgender is a big adjustment for all family members.  Support your child by educating yourself, using their desired name and pronoun, and following their lead.  Most important, tell them that you've got their back and that you love them just the way they are.

Native PFLAG & Arizona's Two Spirit Powwow

Native PFLAG, the only PFLAG chapter in the country that focuses on supporting Native American LGBGQ+/TwoSpirit individuals, hosted Arizona's first Two Sprit powwow in March.  The event paves the way for acceptance of the Native LGBTQ+ community.  In a break with tradition, Native PFLAG decided to remove the gender binary from powwow dance categories, as many tribes recognize more than two genders.  "We welcomed all gender expressions and honored those who do not identify with the gender binary".
