Meetings

Monthly meetings are free and all are welcome

PFLAG Princeton, serving all of Central New Jersey, meets on the second Monday of each month. We meet in the George Thomas Room at Trinity Church, 33 Mercer Street, Princeton, NJ. Our meetings begin at 7:00 PM and generally run until around 9:00 PM. Trinity Church is situated between Route 206 and Mercer Streets at the south end of Princeton, at the intersection of Alexander Road and Mercer Street.  There is a parking lot available to use on Mercer Street just past the church as you come from central Princeton – please do not park in the circle in front of the church.

Signs posted on the entry doors will guide you to the George Thomas Room where PFLAG Welcome Committee members will greet you and introduce you to our group.  Be reassured that this group is a safe place for you to express your feelings OR to just listen to what others have to say.  All conversations are confidential.

At each of our meetings, we begin by checking in with each of our members as well as new parents and friends who are attending for the first time. Often, our entire meeting time is devoted to discussion and support group activities designed to encourage old and new members to discuss issues and events which are significant in their lives, and share their experiences with the others.

As we decide on speakers and programs for meetings, from time to time we will change the listings below accordingly so that you know what to expect. We do include time for group discussion at every meeting, whether there is also a program or not.
