A Little to the Left

Recently, PFLAG National received a telephone call from Sandi Timberlake, who owns A Little to the Left LLC, a San Diego based greeting card company. Sandi is a PFLAG mom who felt it was important to honor her son by creating a line of cards designed for specifically for the friends and families of the gay community, as well as the gay community itself.

As the proud mother of Sean Timberlake, who has been in a committed relationship for over 15 years, she has been frustrated with the lack of appropriate greeting cards available to her to send her son and his long-term partner. Often, she would find cards that were too raunchy or comical, especially for parents, or other family members to honor their loved ones. So she decided to create appropriate cards for herself and for all those other mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends of the gay community who felt the same frustration.

Sandi has graciously offered to donate a portion of the proceeds she receives from cards she sells from people following this link to PFLAG. Please visit her site at, where you can currently find her “Gay Friendly” line of cards. She hopes to expand to several more lines soon, including “Blended Family” and “Just Say It” lines, which are already in the works. We are grateful to Sandi for her support and hope you will show it too.
