The foundation of PFLAG’s support, education and advocacy goals has always been the commitment and drive of parents. Whether we come to PFLAG looking for information about what it means to have a GLBT child or to assist in our own coming out process, or to advocate for basic rights for our children, parents both historically and currently form the foundation of the organization.Parent stories:
