PFLAG MISSION STATEMENT

PFLAG promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through:

  • Support, to cope with an adverse society;
  • Education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and
  • Advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights.

PFLAG provides opportunity to dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identify, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
