In trying times visible, vocal, and active allyship is more significant than ever. PFLAG parents and allies, in communities nationwide, have the power to encourage LGBTQ inclusion and to model the supportive and welcoming behavior we hope to see in others. But sometimes even the most dedicated ally can run in to situations where they’re not sure how to react – or whether a reaction is even warranted. Straight for Equality is here to help.

Thanks for participating in PFLAG Academy Online! One of our key goals is to help you take the information that you learned in this session and use it to make your chapter stronger and more effective. To do that, we’ve created this page to provide you with tools, resources, and references to materials mentioned in the workshop. As always, the PFLAG National staff is here to help. If you have any questions, comments, or just need some good advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us

About Straight for Equality for Chapter Leaders

We have some great tools to help you learn more about the Straight for Equality program, how you can use it in your chapter, and much more. We'll help you consider how the ways you approach support, education and advocacy, the language you use, and your expectations of new allies can make a difference in engaging new people in the fight for equality. PFLAGers are the original allies, and now you're leading the way in creating a new generation of allies. We're glad that you're here to be part of the effort. We couldn't do it without you.
