PFLAG National Faith Resources

We’re happy to provide a variety of faith-based resources for those who are–or love someone who is–LGBTQ+. We have worked with hundreds of thousands of people who identify as persons of faith, and no one will ever need to make this journey alone. PFLAG National has two helpful publications: Faith in Our Families (newly updated in 2021 and now available in Spanish!) for families of faith who take a journey when a loved ones comes out; and be not afraid, help is on the way: straight for equality in faith communities, a publication for people of faith who want to be better allies. 

As you review these resources, and the selections below, if you have one that has been helpful to you and is accessible across the U.S. to others, please contact us at [email protected] to share that information with us. We are always happy to learn of new and helpful resources to help anyone who reaches out to PFLAG as they work through reconciling long-held faith beliefs with long-held love and support for an LGBTQ+ person or the community at large. 

Faith Resources for Christians
Faith Resources for Christians
While the actions of some churches have given Christians a bad name when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights, others have worked for decades fighting the good fight toward inclusion for all. Doctrinal and sectarian splits make it difficult to keep score, but the organizations below have, by and large, been in it for the long haul. Here is a list of resources for a variety of Christian denominations.
Faith Resources for Jews
Faith Resources for Jews
Jews have contributed mightily to the fight for LGBTQ equality. In recent years, many Jewish congregations have supported same-sex marriage (and welcomed ceremonies into their temples), and in 2015, the Union for Reform Judaism officially adopted a transgender rights policy. Reform Judaism in particular has a long history of being welcoming to people who are LGBTQ. The organizations below concentrate on institutional and theological change to fully integrate Judaism and the full spectrum of sexual and gender expression.
Faith Resources for Muslims
Faith Resources for Muslims
Muslim communities have been subjected to Islamophobia, racism, and violence. In a number of ways, the contemporary Muslim experience mirrors the LGBTQ+ experience, and makes support for those whose identities intersect with both communities all the more important. Here is a list of resources for those of Muslim faith and are--or love someone who is--LGBTQ+.
Faith Resources for Interfaith/Non-Denominational Communities
Faith Resources for Interfaith/Non-Denominational Communities
The work done between and among faiths is an important part of the movement toward full equality, since it brings together communities of faith with the LGBTQ community and their allies. Below are some organizations doing vital interfaith and nondenominational work.
