For Families and Friends

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 LGBT people and LGBT people themselves.  We have been through much of what you are now feeling.  We listen.  We understand.

Our chapter meetings are open to everyone.  Our Entre Familia chapter conducts meetings in Spanish; our Southside chapter is primarily African American in membership; and our Parents of Transgender Individuals Support Group is for parents and family members of transgender loved ones.  However, each of our chapters welcomes people from all walks of life, from every racial and ethnic group, and all religious background.
