Resources for VA Trans + Nonbinary Youth

To every proud family acting with love for their trans and nonbinary kids, PFLAG has your back. Below are links to resources, PFLAG chapters, and partners where you and your trans and nonbinary loved ones can find support, respect, and dignity.

About

At a time when we are seeing hundreds of bills across dozens of states targeting trans youth and their families, PFLAG National is proud to partner with Have A Gay Day to elevate messages of love, joy, and support. For nearly 50 years, PFLAG has been leading with love, and the minute we saw the work that was being done by Have A Gay Day, we knew we wanted not only to support it but to broadly expand the reach and visibility.

Support

Find your local PFLAG Virginia chapters for virtual meetings and to help connect you with additional local resources.

Use Your Voice

Affirming your child for who they are, inclusive of their race, abilities and genders, is an act of love. Seeking the help your child needs at the time they need it is an act of love. PFLAG asks you to join us as we continue supporting and encouraging families and caregivers in these acts of love for their transgender and nonbinary children.

  1. Encourage your neighbors, colleagues and community members to go to PFLAG Chapter programming to learn how to better support our trans and nonbinary loved ones, specifically trans and nonbinary youth.
  2. Share these posts on social media letting your connections know that trans youth belong everywhere | SHARE THIS FACEBOOK POST | RESHARE THIS INSTAGRAM POST
