PARENTS, FAMILIES, FRIENDS AND ALLIES
UNITED WITH LGBTQ+ PEOPLE
Working to create safe communities!
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Our goal is to help people better understand what it means to be LGBTQ+, how crucial it is for those individuals to have the support and acceptance of those around them, and for everyone to be able to live fully – and safely – as their true selves, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
PFLAG STARTED WITH PAReNTS
The name of our organization is pronounced “p-flag.” The acronym is no longer expanded, as its original meaning has evolved. PFLAG is the first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) people, their parents and families, and allies. People who are LGBTQ+ and their families deserve to be safe and secure, no matter where they live, study, pray, or play. Through our mission of support, education, and advocacy, PFLAG works to ensure that all communities provide this type of security and help all of us thrive together.
