Access Hollywood Features "Prayers for Bobby"

Upcoming Lifetime Television film Prayers for Bobby, based on the true story of a mother who loses her gay son to suicide and later becomes a PFLAG mom, was featured last night on Access Hollywood.

The upcoming film is due out in January (stay tuned for special information from PFLAG about how you can get involved in watching this LGBT-affirming film). It stars Sigourney Weaver as Mary Griffith, whose son, Bobby, committed suicide after facing family rejection due to his sexual orientation. The movie chronicles her internal journey to love and acceptance, and finally becoming a voice for other LGBT people by becoming a PFLAG parent.

Sigourney Weaver is the recipient of PFLAG's first-ever Straight for Equality Entertainment Award at our 2009 Straight for Equality Awards Gala coming to Times Square, New York City this February, 5, 2009. Read more about out special gala event here.
