PFLAG event by Sidetrack May 8

PFLAG's "Kisses From Mom" event will take place on Mother's Day—Sunday, May 8—at 3-9 p.m. in front of Sidetrack, 3349 N. Halsted St.

About two dozen PFLAG moms will give back this Mother's Day by rotating shifts throughout the event.

PFLAG Northern Illinois Council president Toni Weaver said that "PFLAG is accepting donations in exchange for a ( chocolate ) kiss from mom to help the organization advocate for a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression."

Donations to PFLAG Northern Illinois will be accepted at the event, at PFLAGIllinois.org, or sent to PFLAG Council of Northern Illinois, P.O. Box 734, Elmhurst, IL 60126.
