What is Pflag?
Pflag is York Region’s LGBTQ2 support, resource and education network – bringing together all members of the community. We are a volunteer-led community based organization servicing one of the fastest growing and multicultural regions nationwide.
Every day, our compassionate volunteers are contacted by frightened adolescents and by angry, fearful or confused parents and family members from all walks of life who have questions or concerns about sexual orientation or gender identity. Our dedicated volunteers are there for those in need when it seems no one else is!FIND OUT WHY PRIDE IS IMPORTANT
