This weekend, join PFLAG and Lifetime to celebrate the release of Prayers for Bobby, the powerful new film starring Sigourney Weaver, Ryan Kelly and Scott Bailey.
Prayers is the true story of Mary Griffith, a devoutly religious mother who struggles to accept her son, Bobby, when he comes out as a young gay man. Following a tragic turn in Bobby’s life, Mary begins an incredible journey toward embracing the gay community . . . with a little help from PFLAG along the way.
This Saturday and Sunday, PFLAG supporters across the country will gather to watch Prayers and talk about the role PFLAG played in the life of Mary Griffith and countless other parents with LGBT loved ones. Cast members will join PFLAG in Dayton, Ohio; Washington, D.C.; and Detroit for premiere events. And PFLAG chapters and supporters in other cities will also gather to discuss Prayers and their own work to help the Mary Griffiths of the world on their journeys, too.
Please join us for one of these upcoming viewing parties:
