Our Mission — 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.
Our Priorities —
Proud People: to make sure that all people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer are not only valued by society, but take pride in and value themselves.
Loving Families: supporting thousands of families across the country and around the world.
Safe Communities: People who are LGBTQ and their families deserve to be safe and secure, no matter where they live, work, study, pray or play. Through our mission of support, education, and advocacy, PFLAG works to make sure that all communities provide this type of security, and have the resources needed to help those communities thrive.
Diverse and Inclusive World: where difference is celebrated, and all people are valued inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
PFLAG is the extended family of the LGBTQ community. We’re made up of LGBTQ individuals, family members and allies. Because together, we’re stronger.
PFLAG provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
Our Vision — We celebrate diversity and envision a society that embraces everyone, including those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. Only with respect, dignity and equality for all will we reach our full potential as human beings, individually and collectively. PFLAG welcomes the participation and support of all who share in, and hope to realize this vision.
We are a community of and welcome LGBTIQQTSA* persons of all ages. LGBTIQQTSA* = lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, two-spirit, and ally.
PFLAG-Olympia welcomes all allies – straight and GLBTQ.
