PFLAG is the extended family of the LGBTQ community. We're made up of LGBTQ individuals, family members and allies. Because together, we're stronger.
Chad originally is from the state of Ohio and moved to the East coast (Connecticut) in 2000. Then moved to San Antonio, TX is fall of 2002.
Chad started to come to PFLAG support meetings in 2012, he was a Board of Governor for the local HRC Steering Committee. Chad conveyed to parents they can either have a negative or a positive role supporting their child, that has come out to them. And this experience has also helped Chad to a road to forgive his mom.
After serving on the Steering Committee with HRC for 8 years (2007 to 2015), Chad joined the Board for PFLAG San Antonio in early 2016. He did various roles to help where needed-like Social Media and Membership. In the election in September 2016 Chad was elected President, and has been re-elected in 2017 and 2018.
Chad loves knowing he can have a positive impact on a family’s future. To assist in preventing the rejection and pain he went through coming out in 1993, Chad considers it to be the best gift.
