We like to think of allyship as a journey - one that is shaped by our diverse personal experiences and backgrounds. No matter where that journey begins, we all have the potential to be allies to people who are LGBTQ.
We are happy to bring PFLAG to your home community, whether it be marching in a local parade, presenting to a school, church, community, or business group about the importance of what we do, or being present in some other way. We have:
