The Mother of a Movement: Jeanne Manford - Ally, Activist, and Founder of PFLAG

When Jeanne Manford's son Morty told her he was gay, it didn't change how she felt about him — but few parents spoke openly about their gay children in the early 1970s. Then son her was beaten by New York City officials for handing out pro-gay leaflets. Manford wrote a powerful letter to the New York Post to complain about how Morty was treated. In the letter she came out as the mother of a gay son.

Morty invited his mother to march with him in the June 1972 Christopher Street Parade — and while marching, she had the idea to form a group to help parents and families of LGBTQ+ people. That was the beginning of PFLAG: Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. For decades, PFLAG has provided a place for allies to show their support of the LGBTQ+ people they love. The Mother of a Movement is a true story of parental support and unconditional love that changed the world.
