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 to dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identify, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.

  • PFLAG 2015 Couples Celebration.  PFLAG's 2015 LGBT Couples Celebration will be on Wednesday, February 4, from 7:00-8:30 pm at the Ward 6 City Council offices at 3202 E. 1st Street, our regular meeting place.  PFLAG will provide all the refreshments and appetizers.  We ask that people RSVP so that we know how much food and drink to bring.  People can do that by emailing or calling (520) 360-3795.  The gathering both celebrates committed LGBT relationships and provides an opportunity for PFLAG parents and friends to see what committed LGBT relationships are like.  This gives parents, allies, and LGBT people themselves hope and encouragement for lasting LGBT relationships.
