For LGBTQ people, their friends and family. For support. For answers. For community. And sometimes, for fun!
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) people come to a PFLAG meeting:
-to learn from other family members and allies how they can tell the people in their own lives that they are LGBTQ.
-to help other people adjust to the news that someone they know is LGBTQ.
-to create a family of choice to replace the family they lost when they came out.
Parents and family members come to get support from other parents and family members who have been through similar experiences.
Spouses of LGBTQ persons come because they want to support their spouses and their families.
Transgender people and their parents come because they want to get support and share about what it is like to have a family member transition to another gender.
Allies and friends come to meetings:
-to support a friend who is LGBTQ
-to learn how to handle LGBTQ issues that face them in today’s society, and how to stand up for the rights of LGBTQ people
-to connect with other folks in their community who care about and are working for equal rights for LGBTQ folks
