Priscilla Fernandez is a proud parent and President of the San Antonio, TX (PFLAG-Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) Chapter. Priscilla was driven to support and advocate for the LGBTQ community when her son came out at the age of 14. She experienced a spiritual epiphany that allowed her to be brave enough to dismiss judgmental societal norms about the LGBTQ community. She found her true passion and peace by quitting her job as a corporate executive and becoming a yoga instructor in order to devote her time to honor the light, love, truth, beauty and peace within others.
