PFLAG is the organization for parents, friends, allies and LGBTQ people united for equality

A feature of our August meeting will be a video by Dr George Weinberg.
Weinberg coined the term "homophobia" in 1965, after he witnessed abhorrence towards a lesbian friend. The word was first printed in Screw on May 5, 1969, followed by Time a few months later. By 1972, Weinberg explained the use of term in Society and the Healthy Homosexual. He suggested that those who harbor prejudice against homosexuals, and not homosexuals themselves, are suffering from a psychological malady, an irrational state of mind. Weinberg, though heterosexual himself, became a leader in the ultimately successful struggle to have homosexuality removed as a diagnostic category from the DSM, the professional therapeutic handbook. He was instrumental in shifting public perception of homosexuality
This promises to be an interesting "don't miss" meeting.
