Reformed Evangelical mom to speak to PFLAG Atlanta on Sunday



Susan Cottrell of Austin, Texas, is a reformed Evangelical Christian. When one of her daughters came out as a lesbian and another came out as bisexual, she and her husband, Robert, knew that their love for them was stronger than any church teaching them to "love the sinner, hate the sin."

Susan runs a blog at www.freedhearts.com where she writes about her experiences and tries to help other parents who find conflict with their Christian beliefs and that of accepting LGBTQ people.

PFLAG conference works to unite LGBT allies across Ga.

The Atlanta chapter of Parents, Families & Friends of Gays and Lesbians (PFLAG) will host the “Leading with Love” Conference Saturday, April 20. The conference is a meeting of leaders and members from PFLAG chapters across the state that will feature guest speakers, seminars and tips for creating local chapters of the LGBT support group.

Conal Charles, co-president of the Atlanta PFLAG chapter, told GA Voice the upcoming conference will give attendees the chance to network with other allies for equality while giving them the tools necessary to start their own LGBT supportive groups.

“We only do this once every three years,” Charles said. “You won’t get this information anywhere else. These are the experts in their fields. Everything you need in a box.”
