About PFLAG Cincinnati

Founded in 1973 after the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son, PFLAG is the nation's largest family and ally organization.
 
PFLAG is the first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people, their parents and families, and allies. With over 400 chapters and 200,000 members and supporters crossing multiple generations of families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas across America, PFLAG is committed to creating a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed. 
 

Local Support

PFLAG of Greater Cincinnati offers:

  • Support through bi-monthly meetings, 1-1 connections, email, and phone.

  • Education through guest speakers, online resources, and a lending library.

  • Advocacy through partnering with local organizations focused on equality and safety for LGBTQ+ people.

 

Meetings are open to all and are completely confidential.  What is said there stays there.  Confidentiality is important to most of us for one reason or another, and at all times we respect the rights of others.

Our Vision & Mission

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
Our mission is to build on a foundation of loving families united with LGBTQ+ people and allies who support one another and to educate ourselves and our communities to speak up as advocates until all hearts and minds respect, value and affirm LGBTQ+ people.

Our Priorities

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.  Find out the ways in which we can provide that support to your family.

 

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 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.

 

Advocacy

Advocacy is a big part of the mission of PFLAG, with members and supporters working to achieve LGBTQ+ equality through changing hearts, minds, and laws. We work at the community level, at the city and state level, and at the federal level to effect change so that people who are LGBTQ+ are safe and equal in their communities.
