Interview: Nan McGregor


Last weekend scores of parents & grandparents for marriage equality rallied in Prahran – waving YES signs.  Most were former PFlag committee members from Melbourne’s Chapter, who strongly still believe their Adult Children /Grandchildren deserve the right to marry if they choose. One of those holding and waving their YES sign proudly was the wonderful Nan McGregor.

25 years ago, Nan McGregor’s son came out to her. She didn’t hesitate when it came for showing love and acceptance for her son. Nan was one of the founders for PFLAG Victoria and has a colourful and vocal history of fighting for LGBT youth. She was a fabulous mum to her son and to many in our community. We love you Nan.

PFLAG Victoria, Melbourne chapter is no longer running due to increased acceptance by parents and families of their child or relative coming out. There are still chapters in Shepparton and Geelong.  People after support can contact Switchboard 1800 184 527
