I’m sorry to say that OutSupport meetings are still not taking place, either in person or online. I am still available to meet with individuals at my house under my shade tree if needed. I’m happy to offer this…please let me know if you live in the area and just want to chat…I’m good at that!:)) Also, if a teen or young adult is in need of a free binder or gaff, we are happy to provide that…just let us know and we can get that to you!

Our good friends at Pflag Cleveland (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Pflag Akron (www.pflagakron.com) and TransCEND Canton (Private Facebook Group…ask to join this group) and Margie’s Hope (www.margieshope.org) continue to welcome folks looking for support and information! We are so grateful for your ongoing warm and welcoming commitment to all LGBTQ individuals, family and friends! Please connect with these organizations for more information!
Lastly, I do want to encourage all of you to make sure you are registered to vote, and I’d like to encourage you all to register for an absentee ballot. With corona around, it will be the safest way to vote. Please do your research on candidates who will support our LGBTQ loved ones and friends in your community (if you aren’t sure…ASK them!!) and plan to vote for those candidates. If you are not registered to vote….NOW IS THE TIME TO REGISTER!!! If you have changed your name legally, please update your voter registration!!
All changes and request for absentee ballots can be found through your local board of elections or find it at www.boe.ohio.gov
Wash your hands, wear your mask, stay physically distant!
Sending lots of virtual hugs until we can meet again…continue to be the best and most authentic YOU!!!
