Speakers Bureau

Our volunteer speakers are available to address business and government employees, students of all ages, and community service groups who are interested in becoming more aware of equality, coming out, and acceptance issues related to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people.

Parents, family members, and friends, and sometimes gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people present basic facts, and share their personal stories. When we “put a face” on the issue, it becomes less threatening. Experience has taught us that in the overwhelming majority of instances, we can actually moderate stereotyping.

Metro DC PFLAG members can participate in panel discussions with other guests (arranged by PFLAG or the host organization), or speak individually. Diversity days, staff meetings, community roundtables, workshops, classes, breakfast, lunch, and dinner meetings, and school assemblies are all great venues for our speakers.

We will be happy to talk with you about planning an event.
