Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) is a socio-political group of family members and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. Its mission statement describes the goals of PFLAG as promoting health and well being of LGBT persons as well as actively supporting their families and friends through education and positive advocacy. This work falls into three general areas:
*Support, to cope with an adverse society
*Education, to enlighten an ill-informed public
*Advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights
PFLAG has more than 500 affiliates throughout the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 11 other countries.
The acronym PFLAG is pronounced "P-FLAG" (/ˈpiːflæɡ/), and until removal of the hyphen in 1993 was officially styled in that manner.
