PFLAG Nashville keeps knowledge in rotation

The Nashville-based chapter of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), a national non-profit organization, announced it will begin collecting books, magazines, videos, and DVDs with GLBT subject matter, and will redistribute these media across the United States, as well as internationally. The recycled merchandise will primarily be sold online, with proceeds going to Nashville PFLAG .

PFLAG board member Rachel Stanton said the reason for the project as being twofold.

"PFLAG Nashville wants to reach GLBT supportive friends, family, and members of the community wherever they are," she said. "Countless U.S. and worldwide areas do not have adequate access to GLBT resources, and PFLAG Nashville wants to help fill that gap. PFLAG Nashville wants to encourage the gay community to recycle these materials, because keeping information moving is always a good thing, especially considering the lack of availablity of these materials at many public libraries across the globe. The GLBT community now has a place to donate their books and magazines, and to be assured it will go to help others support diversity and better handle issues related to this diverse community."

H.G. Stovall, Co-Chair Person for PFLAG Nashville agreed.

"I believe this is an exciting time. Everyone wins as those of us with previously enjoyed materials clean off our bookshelves we are helping others obtain more information and help in an economical way while also financially supporting a very worthy organization," Stovall said. "I wish there had been a resource like this when I was looking for a copy of Coming Out to Parents: A Two-Way Survival Guide for Lesbiansand Gay Men and Their Parents, by Mary V. Borhek."

While PFLAG of Nashville prefers non-fiction GLBT materials, all books, magazines, and videos are accepted and welcomed. Donations may be made by mail or in person. Visit  for more information.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
