Made up of parents, families, friends and straight allies united with people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* (LGBT), PFLAG is committed to advancing equality and societal acceptance of LGBT people through our threefold mission of support, education and advocacy.
PFLAG Pacific Northwest helps PFLAG chapters in the Pacific Northwest in our mission to help promote 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
- Advocacy to end discrimination and secure equal civil rights.
PFLAG provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity. Keeping families together is the mission of PFLAG. Our family 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.
