BettyBetty DeGeneres, mother of US talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres, will be visiting Australia with her daughter this month and has agreed to attend the March meeting of NSW’s Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).

The meeting of PFLAG NSW will be held on Saturday, March 23 at 2pm in the Conference Room, Wesley Lodge Motel (cnr. Hawkesbury and Queens roads, Westmead).
