The April PFLAG program will be held at the 1st Congregational church. Colonel Gary Packard will be speaking about "Morality, Religion, Social Justice and Military Service -- A don't ask, Don't Tell and Transgender Military Service Journey." He is currently actively involved in the implementation of transgender service policy and is active in a number of social justice issues to include gender and race relations, religious respect, and sexual violence prevention. Col. Packard requests that this be an interactive presentation, so bring your questions, comments, and concerns. PFLAG is honored to host Col. Packard for this special and important program. There will also be a short film: "Transgender, At War and in Love" shown in conjunction with this presentation. This film was made in 2015 and is listed on the New York Times "Op Docs" forum for short, opinionated documentaries made by independent filmmakers.
