PFLAG To Have Display & Sign At Peterborough Library To Promote Pride Week

[UPDATE: August 24th -> To clarify, the Decorating Contest was created by and is organized by and continues to be a PFLAG Peterborough initiative.]

----------------

PFLAG Canada Peterborough volunteers will be putting up a LGBTQ and PFLAG display at the main branch of the Peterborough Public Library on August 31st in anticipation of Peterborough PRIDE Week (September 12th to 19th).

PFLAG—which stands for Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays—provides confidential support to LGBTQ persons, their families and friends. The PFLAG Peterborough display and exhibit addresses three groups of people:
1.  All persons questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity.
2.  Families and friends of LGBTQ community who need answers, have concerns, or feel alone when one of their family members or friends "comes out".
3. The general public who are in search of knowledge and understanding of what LGBTQ means.

In addition, this 3'x3' sign below will be going on the library window as part of the library display only and for their information tables—and probably for the PRIDE parade. (It isn't necessarily for the PFLAG Decorating Contest.)
