Diane Troy

South Atlantic (KY, NC, SC, TN)

Diane Troy, past president of PFLAG Charlotte and current PFLAG National South Atlantic Regional Director also serves on the PFLAG Charlotte Board. Call her PFLAG Mom and watch her face light up with pride. Always sprinkled with selfdeprecating humor, Diane's heartfelt message of hope and acceptance to families with LGBTQ loved ones echoes through her work as a mentor and community volunteer. This proud and supportive mom is passionate about the role allies must embrace to push our communities to ones of full inclusion and acceptance.

Diane's volunteer work includes coaching parents of LGBTQ loved ones, working with community organizations to advocate for LGBTQ people and their families, working with faith communities to offer ally instruction and resources, and working with Charlotte Pride and PFLAG Charlotte to offer Pride's Family Zone. Diane has currently expanded these efforts to include other PFLAG chapters in KY, NC, SC, and TN.

When not visiting her son in California or her Jersey family, she enjoys time at home with her rescued pets, a Golden Doodle and TV watching cat.
