Support Circle Plus: Artemis Walker on Healing and Coming Out
This talk will be about the healing process, and how healing is central to coming out as LGBTQ+.
Artemis is a community advocate who works with LGBTQ+ prisoners in the Pacific Northwest. The discussion will include anecdotes about the speaker’s experiences coming out as transgender and non-binary, as well as the experiences of many friends and family members.
Healing looks different for everyone, and the goal of the talk is to prepare listeners for the different ways healing can take place, both in their own lives and in the lives of loved ones.
Joining a PFLAG Connects Support Circle
Our PFLAG Connects online circles function a little differently than our in-person support circles. Here’s how to join a Circle:
Learn how to Circle online before you join the meeting by reading the PFLAG Connects Participant’s Guide on our website.
Click on the big REGISTER button at the top right of this page. You’ll be taken to an e-registration form. Please fill it out and submit it at least 1 hour before the start of the Support Circle. If you’re under 18, a parent or guardian must attend with you. Tip: include your pronouns in the Last Name box. Example: Chelsea Circler (them, they)
We’ll send you an email with the meeting join link and optional dial-in instructions. Save this email! It contains your only ticket to the Circle.
Download the Zoom Meetings app from the App Store for your digital device.
Join on-time. Better yet, join early. The Circle Waiting Room opens 10 minutes before the circle starts and closes shortly after starting time. For your security, no late admissions. When the host begins setting up the meeting room, the Waiting Room will open. At the scheduled start time, the host will admit you to the meeting room.
If you have any questions, send us an email at email@example.com.
