Advocating for LGBTQ+ Equality Since 1973
Founded in 1973 after the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son, PFLAG is the first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people, their parents and families, and allies.
PFLAG has over 400 chapters which make up the PFLAG Chapter Network, and nearly 250,000 members and supporters crossing multiple generations of families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas across America.
This vast grassroots network is cultivated, resourced, and serviced by the staff of PFLAG National, the National Board of Directors, and the all-volunteer Regional Directors Council.
CFH was created by PFLAG National to inspire change through Love, Charity, Compassion, and Belonging—values that are vital to humanity.
