In addition to our monthly meetings, PFLAG Bellevue/Eastside participates in various events, such as parades and marches, lobby days, forums, workshops, and more, that support the LGBTQ community. We list them here, along with occasional posts on events by LGBTQ ally groups. You can also follow our chapter events via Facebook.
November 18th 7PM. Transgender Day of Remembrance event at our chapter’s host church, Bellevue First United Methodist Church. All are invited to memorialize those who lost their lives as a result of transphobia and to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community. Our visible support to the transgender community is particularly meaningful at this time, so please feel free to spread the word (see flyer) to friends and family members.
December 1, 3-5PM Worlds AIDS Day Interfaith Service at First Congressional Church in Bellevue. Find grace in the face of HIV/AIDS. See flyer for complete details.
- 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, 5-7PM, LGBTQ youth and allies from any Eastside School district and in grades 6th-12 grade are welcome to join the Rainbow Teen Advisory Board (also known as R-TAB) which meets at the Redmond Library (except in November & December due to holidays). Members create safe spaces, socialize, and gain valuable leadership experience as they create community events. No application necessary.
- On November 30, 7-10PM at the Bellevue Arts Museum, R-TAB will sponsor Once Upon a Pride: an interactive art night for LGBT+ teens and allies, which will include an open mic performance, LGBTQ+ short films, art created by LGBTQ+ youth, and create your-own-art at craft tables. This is a free event (including entry into the museum) and snacks will be provided. R-TAB is also now seeking teen artists to submit their art for the art exhibit! Go here for details and sign up.
