The second annual PFLAG Parent Day will also feature the stories of LGBTQ+ individuals, allies, parents, and caregivers.
In a statement Doyle said, “I’m so honored to join PFLAG National in shining a light on the many incredible people across the country and around the world who, without judgment, nurture and support members of our incredible community. Their advocacy is more crucial than ever, as those in power try to take away our rights. Now is the moment for all of us—LGBTQ+ people and allies alike—to stand up for and with one another, and I am so excited to get to lead this life-affirming and beautiful celebration.”
PFLAG Parent Day is a fundraising event for PFLAG National, offering viewers the opportunity to contribute to the nonprofit’s life-saving programs that provide support, education, and advocacy for LGBTQ+ people, their parents and families, and allies across the country.
