about pflag

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.

MEETINGS

PFLAG El Paso  provides much-needed support to LGBTQ+ people and their families in the El Paso community. Now, we’re proud to continue providing you trusted support, meeting you where you are--wherever you are--via PFLAG Connects.

 

PFLAG Connects meetings, run by trusted PFLAG El Paso leaders, will give you the support you need during this most-challenging time.

 

Whether you are:

● An LGBTQ+ person who is newly--or not yet--out to your family and friends;

● A parent or family member on a journey of supporting an LGBTQ+ loved one;

● A parent or family members who suspects that someone you love is LGBTQ+ and aren’t sure how to approach the subject, or if you should;

● A teacher, counselor, or school administrator providing online instruction and looking to help support LGBTQ+ students who are out at school but not at home; or

● A friend or ally looking to provide support as you shelter in place
