Why do people come to a PFLAG meeting?

Each of us comes for a different reason.

  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) people come to a PFLAG meeting:
    • to learn from other family members and allies how they can tell the people in their own lives that they are LGBTQ.
    • to help other people adjust to the news that someone they know is LGBTQ.
    • to create a family of choice to replace the family they lost when they came out.
  • Parents and family members come to get support from other parents and family members who have been through similar experiences.
  • Spouses of LGBTQ persons come because they want to support their spouses and their families.
  • Transgender people and their parents come because they want to get support and share about what it is like to have a family member transition to another gender.
  • Allies and friends come to meetings:
    • to support a friend who is LGBTQ
    • to learn how to handle LGBTQ issues that face them in today’s society, and how to stand up for the rights of LGBTQ people
    • to connect with other folks in their community who care about and are working for equal rights for LGBTQ folks
