|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.
