Everyone is welcome to our monthly chapter meetings.  We regularly have interesting educational speakers and always provide an opportunity for both newcomers and old-timers alike to share and learn.  At most meetings, we have a library, which includes books, pamphlets, and audio/video materials about LGBT issues.

All meetings are confidential; PFLAG is a safe place for you to talk, listen and learn.  You do not have to be a member to attend a meeting; there are no meeting fees to pay; you do not have to make an appointment as walk-ins are always welcome.

PFLAG chapters generally meet regardless of holidays; however, contact the chapter via their email to confirm the schedule.

Typically at a meeting you can expect to hear introductions from other PFLAG members, hear a speaker about LGBT topics, then a break, then the members break up into support groups where members talk about their experiences of having an LGBT loved one or being LGBT. we strive to make these meetings as welcoming as possible.

Please note that you do not have to come to the PFLAG meeting in your area. You can go to any meeting you wish. We understand that if you do want to keep your appearance at a PFLAG meeting confidential, you are certainly welcome to go to another meeting where you feel you have the best chance of remaining anonymous. Please contact the general email address at info@pflagillinois.org if you have questions about which meeting is best for you to attend.

If you attended a chapter meeting and came away with questions or concerns, or if you were not satisfied with your experience, please call the helpline at 630.415.0622 or email at info@pflagillinois.org and we will respond to your concerns.
