LGBTQ Events in Peterborough & the Kawarthas

September 8, 2022
  • Pflag Sharing Meeting

    September 8, 2022  7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    159 King Street, Peterborough, ON - Suite 302-2

    Pflag Peterborough Sharing meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7pm in Suite 302-2 at the PARN offices on 159 King Street in downtown Peterborough. If the door is locked, dial #6 on the keypad by the door to connect with Catherine and Daniel to open outside door. The location is elevator accessible. Parking is available in the King St. garage (free after 7 p.m.) or on King St.

    Meetings are for LGBTQ2S individuals, their parents, family members, friends, and allies. Meetings are based on peer models, meaning those with previous and existing knowledge provide empathetic support to others. It is not a formal psycho-therapeutic intervention. An agreement precedes the meeting regarding personal discussion: it is confidential and must stay in the room. Those attending have the opportunity to share their story if they wish, although there is no pressure to share. Some may choose to just listen and learn from others. Community updates on LGBTQ2S resources and events are also provided.

    For directions or more information, please email: peterboroughon@pflagcanada.ca

    Our support group focuses on challenges and feelings associated with coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) and the way it touches relationships with families, friends and our larger communities. We understand that we are all here to better understand our own feelings about sexual orientation and gender identity and to support each other as we learn to embrace our own sexual orientation or gender identity, or that of our loved ones.

    We provide support by listening carefully, sharing our own stories, and discussing our own problem-solving experiences. We are sensitive to each person’s stage in the acceptance process. We each speak from our own experiences, and respect the experiences of others.

    Confidentiality is a top priority. Nothing said in the room is to leave the room, nor will people be pressed to share more information than they are comfortable with here or after the meeting. We are supportive rather than confrontational. Anyone who is uncomfortable may make this known to the facilitator. Everyone will be given the chance to speak. To ensure that this can happen, each person is asked to be conscious of the amount of time they are using in order to leave adequate time so that others may also speak.
