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.

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.
