Blog About Gay Soldier's Coming Out Story Promotes PFLAG

Randy Phillips, a 21 year old soldier stationed in Germany, came out to his father on September 20th after "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" was repealed officially. He broadcast the phone call on the video-sharing site, “YouTube.” Soon afterward, he decided to tell his mother. He also broadcast his experience. Helen A.S. Popkin from Digital Life on Today.com blogged about Phillip’s bravery, and broke down the 20 minute phone call into a fair response. Popkin is far from condemning in her analysis of Phillips’ mother’s response to the news. She reminds her readers of the difficulty involved with learning about a child’s sexual identity, and reminds them that change occurs over time.


Popkin’s resources at the end of her story list four LGBT organizations. The first resource listed is our very own PFLAG! Popkin writes, “[PFLAG] is a national non-profit organization that provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.”


Keep up the great work PFLAGers! It’s great to be listed as the #1 resource in a story about one young man’s journey to gain family acceptance
