PFLAG’s organizational roots are in activism and advocacy, starting nearly 50 years ago with one mom in New York who took to the streets with a homemade sign, advocating for equality and justice for her gay child. Our members and supporters build on that legacy, working to achieve LGBTQ+ equality by changing hearts, minds, and laws at the local level, at the city and state level, and at the federal level to affect critical and long-overdue change. Learn more about the legislation we’re fighting for--and pushing against--alongside our LGBTQ+ loved ones and their families.
