Your first reaction to learning that your loved one is gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning can range from anger to sadness, fear to hurt, confusion to grief, and anywhere and everything in between. These emotions and experiences are normal.
PFLAG is here to help you. Our members are parents, families and friends of LGBTQ+ people and LGBTQ+ people themselves. We have been through much of what you are now feeling. We listen. We understand.
If you or someone you know is straight and wants to support LGBTQ+ communities, join in the fight for equality, or just learn more about these issues, you’ve come to the right place. PFLAG needs your help. You are welcome to come to our chapter meetings and encourage to get as involved as you can.
People who are LGBTQ+ are welcome to attend meetings. Some want to help friends and families better understand sexual orientation and gender identity, while others may want to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. We offer our support and unconditional love to people at any point in their journey.
