straight for equality
Talking Inclusively: June 2018

Welcome to Talking Inclusively, a monthly series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about intersectionality, LGBTQ+ issues, inclusion and more! Each month we’ll offer an article on diverse topics and suggest a few questions that you can use to lead a discussion focused on how we can make space that is more welcoming to everyone.

Have feedback about how your conversation went? Run across an article you’d like us to consider? Let us know by e-mailing [email protected].

Questions for Discussion:

  1. How much do you know about the history of The Stonewall Riots? Do you recognize the name Marsha P Johnson and/or Sylvia Rivera? If so, can you share with others what you know about them? If not, what resources are available to help you learn more?
  2. To your knowledge are there Black, Asian, Latino and/or Women’s Pride events organized in your community? If so, have you ever attended or considered attending? Why or why not?
  3. In your opinion, what is the most important part of developing, growing, and maintaining a coalition? What action could your group or organization take to ensure you are the best coalition partners that you can be?
