Our chapter of PFLAG provides support for parents who have just learned that their child is gay, and for the GLBTQ persons who want desperately to have their parents and family understand. We provide educational materials to enable families to understand each other, and we advocate for civil rights and against harassment and bullying.
Please note that our support meetings are absolutely confidential….a place to share our concerns or just to listen. We respect each other’s privacy. At each meeting, we specifically state that none of us will ever tell anyone else that we met at PFLAG.
And yet we want people in Alamance County to know we exist, providing support and education and advocating for civil rights. This website is one way we hope to share our mission and services with the Alamance County community.
Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) promotes the well-being of gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgendered persons, their families and friends through:
- support, to cope with an adverse society;
- education, to enlighten an ill-informed public;
- advocacy, to end discrimination and secure equal civil rights.
PFLAG provides an opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
