More Gay and Lesbian Organizations To Descend Upon UM General Conference


A message from PFLAG-Cleveland


April 2000

We would like to take this opportunity to reach out to you and to ask for your support and participation in a project that is very important to us at PFLAG-Cleveland, in the United Methodist Church and perhaps across all religions.

On Monday, May 1, 2000, we are asking parents and family members from the area and region to join us for a vigil for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered children. This peaceful vigil will be held in front of the FREE Stamp sculpture in downtown Cleveland the day following the national march on Washington, DC, and on the eve of the opening events of the international convention of the United Methodist Church here in Cleveland.

Rev. Paul Beeman, President PFLAG National, Rabbi David Horowitz, PFLAG-Akron, Leslie Sadasivan, loving mother of Robbie Kirkland, Bruce Kriete, Jes Sellers and Jane Daroff of PFLAG-Cleveland, Aaron Patterson a student at Case Western Reserve University, and others will speak. Folk music by Doug McWilliams and Janni Wanner.

Won't you please plan to join us in this vigil? Bring along a baby picture or memento of your child, or just come in quiet support of our cause.

Your presence is all we are hoping for if you can possibly make it.
