If you're on your journey
towards being yourself
or want to help others on theirs

Welcome to our PFLAG family.

As LGBTQ Americans age, finding senior housing can be a challenge.
There are as many names for Two-Spirit people as there are Native American tribes, as this interactive map shows.
Back for a 6th year, this popular program funds small projects sponsored by Gay/Straight Alliances or other nonprofit, youth oriented organizations.

LGBTQ and straight, parents, friends, and allies
building an inclusive and compassionate world.

We do more than sit in circles.

Through peer-to-peer support, educating people on the issues, and advocating for inclusive policies and laws, we keep Portland's LGBTQ folks, families, and friends strong.

PFLAG started with a group of loving parents in a living room, sharing their stories, keeping their families strong. On-line or in-person, the power of that safe space is still at the heart of all that we do.

Knowledge is power. Through the lens of our personal experience, we share the best research - on line and in person, through publications, presentations, and organizational training.

Our GSA mini-grants, student internships, and Youth Art drop-in programs help LGBTQ youth become proud and confident adults.

It’s tough enough to be a straight boy in a small town high school looking for the love of your life. But at least your possible loves are all out in the open.

Coming Out is a Journey

Coming Out is an individual journey taken with everyone you know and everyone who loves you.

The Best Thing about Coming Out

The single best thing about coming out of the closet is that nobody can insult you by telling you what you've just told them.
