The Trustees of FFLAG are proud and delighted to announce that Bobbi Pickard has agreed to become a patron of our charity.
Bobbi is the Founder of Trans in the City, a trans-national partnership of corporations and organisations working together to further inclusion of transgender, non-binary and gender diverse people in business.
Bobbi commented, “I have so much love and respect for FFLAG and its amazing members. I know few organisations with such inspirational, lovely and dedicated people so I am absolutely delighted. I am really looking forward to working with the trustees and volunteers on our shared aim of legal and social equality for all and providing support for families with LGBT+ family members.”
Sarah Furley, Vice Chair of FFLAG, said, “Family understanding, acceptance and support are crucial for LGBT+ children if they are to fulfil their potential and live authentic and happy lives. Bobbi’s involvement will help FFLAG extend the reach of our support for families with LGBT+ members across the UK and beyond, particularly to parents seeking to support trans children. Her name alone will help us to reach families who need our support and, indeed, to recruit parent volunteers willing to share their experiences with other parents setting out on the road to understanding and acceptance.”
