Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) promotes
the health and well-being of LGBTQ people their families and friends through:

support ~ to cope with an adverse society
education ~ to inform and enlighten the public,
to promote acceptance and inclusivity

The purpose of PFLAG is to support, educate, and provide resources to
parents, families and friends of LGBTQ people, and also to LGBTQ people themselves.
We welcome people of all genders and sexualities.
Help can come in the way of a simple conversation, a shoulder to cry on,
peers to celebrate with, literature to read, or referrals to appropriate resources near you.

PFLAG gives presentations for school groups, professional organizations,
youth groups, and virtually any other group of people who would benefit from this information.
Attendees will learn how to create inclusive and accepting environments,
and will learn what it's like to come out, or to have a family member or friend come out.
Many resources are available to attendees, and of course there is always time for Q&A.

LGBTQ = lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgendered, two-spirit, intersex, queer, and questioning.
We welcome people of all genders and sexualities.

PFLAG provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity,
and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
