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

By meeting people where they are and collaborating with others, PFLAG realizes its vision through:

- Support for families, allies and people who are LGBTQ+
- Education for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ+
- Advocacy in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ+

PFLAG began in 1973 and has 400 Chapters across the United States.  PFLAG Tri-Cities, also known as PFLAG Great Lakes Bay Region was formed in September of 1990.
