Our Mission, Vision, and Goals

Our Vision

PFLAG envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

Our Mission

Meeting people where they are and collaborating with others, we:

  • Support LGBTQ people, families, and allies
  • Educate ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing LGBTQ people
  • Advocate in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that affirm the dignity of and realize full equality for LGBTQ people everywhere

Our Goals

Proud People

PFLAG is working to make sure that all people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer are not only valued by society, but take pride in and value themselves. We do this through providing peer-to-peer support, educating people on the issues that are important to the community, and advocating for inclusive policies and laws.

Loving Families

Family support and acceptance is critical to the health and wellbeing of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer…and PFLAG has been at the forefront of this work for over four decades.

Safe Communities

People who are LGBTQ and their families deserve to be safe and secure, no matter where they live, work, study, pray or play. Through our mission of support, education, and advocacy, PFLAG works to make sure that all communities provide this type of security, and have the resources needed to help those communities thrive.

Diverse and Inclusive World

PFLAG’s vision is to create a world where difference is celebrated, and all people are valued inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Our mission of support, education, and advocacy guides our work on this important goal.
