PFLAG Nashville moves to new meeting location


After meeting for several years at the Cohn Adult Learning Center , the Nashville chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) have moved their meetings to Laskey Hall at Scarritt-Bennett Center .

The group meets the third Tuesday night of each month. Scarritt-Bennett Center is located at 1008 19th Avenue South , near Vanderbilt University .

PFLAG Nashville is one of 540 local chapters of a national organization whose goals are to offer support to gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered individuals and their families; to educate a public that often knows little about them and to be an advocate for justice for GLBT citizens. The Nashville chapter of PFLAG was founded in the late eighties through the efforts of a small group of parents of gay and lesbian young people.

“The move to Scarritt-Bennett Center comes just as PFLAG Nashville is entering a new chapter in its history,” PFLAG co-chair Don Shockley said. “We have gathered fresh momentum from a successful conference our local group hosted for PFLAG leaders from throughout Tennessee and Kentucky in April. And we believe that our new location will build upon that positive experience.”
