How We Can Help

LGBTQ persons and families face unique issues and challenges.  Whether for yourself or someone you love, learning more matters.  Whether at a local school or at the dinner table, knowledge is power. PFLAG publishes helpful, informative pamphlets. Request a specific pamphlet or guide  - we work with local public schools to reduce bullying, provide training for teachers, coaches, administrators, and counselors. We will to speak at your event or conduct a workshop.  More →

PFLAG History

In 1972, Jeanne Manford started an international movement when she marched with her son Mortie in New York’s Gay Pride Parade.  Enraged that her son had been beaten at a gay rights protest two months before while police did nothing, she carried a sign at the Pride march that said, “Parents of Gays: Unite in Support of Our Children.” Thirty years later, PFLAG includes more than 500 chapters nationwide, over 200,000 members, supporters, and affiliates.  More →
