Parents, Families, Friends, and Allies
United With LGBTQ People To
Move Equality Forward!
If you’re here, then you have a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ+) relative or friend who needs your support. You’ve come to the right place.
When someone makes the decision to come out to you the first thing to know is that this means they trust you and want you to be a part of this very important and intimate aspect of their life. It is an act of love, respect and trust to come out to someone, and likewise it should be reciprocated with love, respect, and trust.
The PFLAG Princeton chapter is focused on supporting family members and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) people. We hold monthly meetings where attendees have the opportunity to share their experiences, feelings, and challenges in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment. Some participants are looking to get better educated, some are working to come to terms with their loved one’s sexuality, and some have an LGBTQ+ friend or family member and want to be better able to support, understand, or relate to this aspect of their loved one’s life.
Those whose loved ones have been out for years and are living healthily and happily as proud LGBTQ+ people come to our meetings. They sit next to and share with people whose loved ones came out maybe just the week before, and may feel lost, confused, and not sure where to go or what to do next. PFLAG can be a treasure trove of resources for those who need a little guidance, or just want to share.
Through this website and at our meetings you will find a wealth of information on LGBTQ+ issues, as well as some information on what you can do to help support your loved one and educate yourself, as well as some general information on our meetings and programs.
What is PFLAG? (pronounced “p-flag”)
PFLAG is an organization of LGBTQ+ people, parents, families, and allies who work together to create an equitable and inclusive world. We are hundreds of thousands of people and hundreds of chapters from coast to coast who are leading with love to support families, educate allies, and advocate for just, equitable, and inclusive legislation and policies. Since our founding in 1973, PFLAG works every day to ensure LGBTQ+ people everywhere are safe, celebrated, empowered and loved. Learn more, find support, donate, and take action at PFLAG.org.
The PFLAG Princeton chapter was formed in 1999.
