Founded in 1973, PFLAG is the first and largest organization dedicated to supporting, educating, and advocating for LGBTQ+ people and their families. PFLAG’s network of hundreds of chapters and more than 250,000 members and supporters works to create a caring, just, and affirming world for LGBTQ+ people and those who love them.
Love & Compassion
PFLAG believes that lives are transformed by unconditional love. To help people achieve this, we recognize we must exercise compassion for ourselves and others willing to take the journey toward love and acceptance.
PFLAG believes in the responsibility of leading by example. As leaders, we work to join together as families, allies and LGBTQ people to fulfill our shared vision to achieve full legal equality and societal inclusion. To do this, we commit to listening, supporting and responding in building relationships with those we serve.
Diversity & Inclusion
PFLAG believes that the things that make us diverse are what makes us powerful. To ensure that we are being inclusive and respectful of everyone we serve, we commit to listening, learning and engaging with diverse communities. We believe true inclusion means to meet others where they are, acknowledging and embracing their stories.
PFLAG believes that we are measured by our words and actions. We commit to empowering people in our communities to join together to transform the places where they live. In partnership with others, we are united to advocate for change toward full equality.
PFLAG believes learning is the key to positive change and inclusion. Therefore, we commit to providing and involving ourselves in ongoing learning opportunities to continually broaden our worldview, overcome misinformation and bias, in order to live our values.
