PANDA (Parents AND Allies)

panda support group PANDA supports the family and friends of the LGBTQ community. We all have loved ones facing unique challenges and we need a place to share the joys and concerns with others on the same journey.

We provide a safe, confidential space to talk openly about our experiences as a parent, a grandparent, a teacher, or a friend. It is a place to learn and grow and form friendships along the way. No matter what stage you are in the process, PLEASE join us! We can all learn from each other’s experiences.

We meet on the 1st Thursday of the month from 6:00-8:00pm at The Center.

This is a convenient time for parents to get together while their children attend the Galaxy Group at The Center. Light snacks and beverages are available – free will offering accepted.  

Our PANDA group is led by Niki Pohnl (a local parent of a transgender child). Please contact Niki at with questions.
