|Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Persons
|PFLAG - Central Maryland Chapter
|Meetings: Central MD chapter meetings are held 7:00pm to 9:00pm on the first Wednesday each month. We
meet at 25 East 2nd Street in downtown Frederick @ Grace UCC. When facing church take left sidewalk to white
doors, when inside continue forward to classroom #3 on the right opposite the stairs down. Everyone is welcome at
PFLAG meetings; there is absolutely no fee, registration or membership required. LGBTQ Youth Group meeting, run
by The Frederick Center, meets downstairs from us.
|Mission: Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) promotes the health and well-being of gay,
lesbian bisexual and transgender 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 to secure civil rights
PFLAG provides an opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation, and acts to create a society that is healthy and
respectful of human diversity. If you are looking for a safe place to laugh, cry, question, or celebrate; to have frank
discussions with gays and lesbians and their allies; to learn more about the effects of homophobia in our society; and
to advocate for a more just society, our chapter is the place for you.
