Our goal

With lifetimes of misinformation about homosexuality and gender identity, many people don’t know where to turn when they find out a family member or friend is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered (LGBT). PFLAG provides direct support to people who need answers to their questions and help with strengthening family relationships.

Support groups meet each month and offer a non-judgmental outlet for feelings and a place to meet other people in similar situations. Meetings offer opportunities to learn about LGBT people and their families – through speakers, videos, and discussions. Those who come for help often become those who help others.

PFLAG is making a safer world for LGBT and gender non-conforming people and their family members by dispelling myths and by communicating the truth about LGBT families and friends. PFLAG reaches out to schools, faith communities, and other organizations to encourage leadership that fosters community acceptance of diversity.
