Thanksgiving – Covid Style

11/22/2020 @ Kiesel Park

We always look forward to sharing a big meal with those looking for affirming Thanksgiving community, but in this time of pandemic that’s unfortunately not possible. However, we miss seeing you all and did want to get together responsibly. We will be getting together at Kiesel, near the pavilion, socially distanced and masked, and would love you to join us. We’ll get together for community, have prepackaged snacks, paint positivity rocks to leave at the park, and talk about our holiday buddy system we want to use to keep ourselves connected in the coming weeks. We hope you can make it!

Auburn PFLAG General Meetings:


Please join us for our general meetings the third Thursday of each month from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.  Due to Covid-19 we are currently having virtual meetings.  Please email to request a zoom link to join the monthly meeting.

This is an ongoing group which meets once a month. Please email for date and times if you’d like to join.  We will also be happy to speak with you one on one if you need someone to talk to.

We welcome people of all races, religions, cultures, gender expressions and sexual orientations. We welcome people at all stages of understanding and acceptance of LGBTQ issues. PFLAG strives to meet people where they are. We ask that everyone in this space be respectful of other’s personal journey even if it does not reflect your own.
