New PFLAG video available

"Weird and Wacky? Families Trying to Understand Homosexuality" is a 36-minute educational video that takes an intimate look at a lesbian couple's two extended families as they work through various stages of the acceptance process.

Using humor, music, old family film footage, and tech effects, the video confronts in a non-threatening way some of the common misconceptions some people have, and presents lesbians and gays as normal, hard working people who make important contributions to our society. By showing gays and lesbians within the family context, it defies the lie of the Far Right which falsely claims that homosexuals are a threat to the Family.

Addressing a number of important issues, this video will stimulate spirited discussion. It has received very positive national press coverage.
