PFLAG Silver City will host presentations by Candice Burke and George Carr on Tuesday, March 6, 7:00 PM, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 3845 N. Swan. The public is invited, and refreshments will be served.

Candice Burke was employed as a licensed clinical social worker in the 1980s, working with persons with AIDS at a major hospital in Orlando, Florida. She will discuss the attitudes and fears of the general population of Orlando at that time and her experiences with medical personnel charged with caring for patients dying from AIDS.

George Carr, a retired Florida lawyer, will speak about his experiences with gay adoptions, beginning with the legal prohibition of such adoptions in Florida in the past and up to today when same sex couples can legally adopt a child. He will also detail the grim reality surrounding recent efforts by a gay couple to adopt a child .

Uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) with families, friends, and allies, PFLAG is committed to advancing equality through its mission of support, education, and advocacy. For more information, call 575-590-8797 or go to http://www.pflagsilver.org
