PFLAG is the first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people, their parents and families, and allies.
When a child comes out, there’s a chance a parent won’t always know what to do or say. And that’s ok; even parents who are supportive don’t always know how to react. At PFLAG, we know that family support plays a critical role in fostering greater acceptance and more health and happiness for the LGBTQ+ community. Every time a parent comes out in support of their child they inspire others to do the same, making the world a more accepting, affirming, and loving place.
In collaboration with OREO, the #ProudParent platform champions the proud parents of yesterday and today, and inspires those of tomorrow. Together we’ve created this page to provide parents and role models with tools and resources to be supporting allies.
By coming to this page you have taken the first step towards becoming a proud parent and making the world a more accepting and affirming place – so thanks. Click here to check out our Instagram filter to show the world you’re a #ProudParent.
