Tri-Cities PFLAG chapter on the move! . I missed this one yesterday, but John Shuck deserves a hat tip for passing it on to me. Nice coverage for the state's newest PFLAG chapter. Here's how one member describes the group's hopes.

“What I would really hope is that several years down the road, we wouldn’t need to have a PFLAG Tri-Cities,” she said. “I don’t think that’s particularly realistic, given the time in which we live in. But I really would like to see a larger, vibrant organization that would be able to advocate in the community for all people; that perhaps we would not just be focusing on creating a supportive community, but we might be able to advocate for change in how things are done in the community and perhaps some legalized discrimination could be made illegal.”

I think that's exactly right. Creating a supportive community lays a good foundation for legislative change. They're on the right track.
