PFLAG Stanwood-Camano was born from the first ever Stanwood-Camano Pride on June 4, 2022. With over 800 people attending, a need for LGBTQIA+ community building and support was obvious. With proceeds from the Pride event, a group of volunteers started working on creating a safe and accepting space within Stanwood and Camano Island.
Previously there was a PFLAG Stanwood group that was a satellite of PFLAG Skagit. The satellite eventually dissolved. With the amazing help of our friends at PFLAG Skagit, we are bringing back the support, education, and advocacy that our local area has been wanting.

When my daughter came out in January 2022, I dedicated myself to making the world a safer place for our LGBTQIA+ youth and adults. I am proud to continue that journey as a member of PFLAG and an employee of the Stanwood-Camano School District. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Freedom Park, a member of the Stanwood-Camano School District Equity Team, founder of Stanwood-Camano Pride, and I like goats.
