Relationships are precious. PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) encourages families and friends to stay close to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people in their lives.
If you are having difficulties processing the information that someone you know is gay, contact a PFLAG chapter near you. PFLAG is a primarily heterosexual organization that provides a place where parents, siblings and friends of gay people can deal with their stresses and fears, learn from knowledgeable & accepting families, and ultimately build stronger, closer relationships with their gay loved ones.
Keeping families together is PFLAG's ultimate mission. PFLAG's values stress education, understanding, acceptance, and support, but most of all love, thereby empowering our children - straight and gay - to lead happy and productive lives.
As Cyndi Lauper has said: "It's all about love and respect...and pride in each other...and family...PFLAG is about family."
PFLAG has over 500 affiliates in the US, who work to provide opportunities for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and act to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity. Find out more about PFLAG and what you can do to Stay Close to your loved ones.
