Bob and Denise Malosh

Bob and Denise Malosh (Midland) learned that their youngest son, Kent, was gay when he was 12. Kent was bullied at school and in the community. Finding PFLAG, they learned how to support Kent and live an authentic and happy life. They attended workshops, learned about LGBT issues, lobbied in Lansing and contacted elected leaders. They became leaders of Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG Tri-Cities) – Bob as president and Denise as secretary. Their involvement with PFLAG helped dozens of other families to learn that a child’s sexual orientation is not a dividing issue but it is a blessing.
