Who We Are
“PFLAG” is Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians And Gays. We are a national support, education and advocacy organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, their families, friends and allies. With 200,000 members and supporters, and local affiliates in more than 500 communities across the U.S. and abroad, PFLAG is the largest grassroots-based family organization of its kind. PFLAG is a non-profit organization and is not affiliated with any religious or political institutions.
We are here to share the journey to acceptance with you. We are committed to giving support to each other as we discover and understand more about being human. We seek to change attitudes and to create an environment of understanding so that our GLBT family members and friends can live with dignity and respect.
- Support Families — working to keep families in loving relationships by helping them understand and affirm their gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender family members.
- Educate the Public – seeking to dispel myths and misinformation by providing programs such as our Speakers’ Bureau, Safe Schools and Straight for Equality.
- Advocate for Equality — calling for equal human and civil rights.
Everyone is welcome at our meetings. Along with parents and GLBTs, these meetings also include allies, children, spouses, grandparents, and siblings. PFLAG literature is available, we have a free lending library and our members receive a quarterly newsletter. Contact us if you have questions, suggestions or complaints. You always have a home at PFLAG.
