Hello, PFLAG Family,
The Las Cruces Community Theatre, from August 10-26 (Fri. & Sat. 7:30pm; Sun. 2pm), is putting on The Laramie Project. The Laramie Project (2000) by Moisés Kaufman and The Tectonic Theater Project is the story of the reaction to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming.
In the play, eight actors play 60+ roles in vignettes based on interviews with people in Laramie, journal entries written by the cast, and news reports.
A portion of the ticket sales on opening night, August 10, benefits Southern New Mexico Pride as they work toward hosting this year’s Fall Fest.
We hope to see you Friday at 7:30pm, but if not, be sure to catch The Laramie Project on one of the other nights in the run.
It’s time to update your address books because PFLAG Las Cruces has a new P. O. Box number. Ready?
P. O. Box 2495
Las Cruces, NM 88004
At our annual fundraiser in 2017, we premiered a video, Telling Our Stories, about experiences of being part of or an ally to the LGBTQ+ community in Las Cruces. That video showed snippets of each person’s interview. Here’s the full length cut of our interview with Sue.
Thanks to Palamora Productions for the video.
PFLAG Las Cruces will be sponsoring Rainbow Community Initiative Projects supporting the LGBTQ community through advocacy, education, community gatherings, and/or the arts.

Join PFLAG Las Cruces for our monthly PFLAG Family meeting. Many members of the community have asked for the return of the monthly PFLAG meeting, and we listened.
