What does PFLAG do? PFLAG supports LGBT people, their families and friends locally and nationally by providing PFLAG chapter helplines, support group meetings and resources. PFLAG also educates families and communities on sexual orientation, gender identity and LGBT issues. Local PFLAG chapters educate their communities through a variety of projects while PFLAG National continues to provide fair and accurate information about LGBT people, their loved ones, and the unique challenges they face. PFLAG also advocates for equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people on local, state, and national levels.
What are PFLAG's top priorities? As an organization that believes that change happens at the grassroots level in local communities, it is PFLAG's number one priority to support the work of local affiliates. We do this by providing affiliates with nationally produced resources and the guidance, time and expertise of our national staff. PFLAG's top priorities also include working for safe schools for all students and working to build and support models of inclusion to make PFLAG and our work relevant for all diverse communities. PFLAG works to ensure equal civil rights and protections for LGBT people and works to help make faith communities more welcoming.
PFLAG St. Cloud gathers the first Monday of each month at the Peace United Church of Christ (402 8th Ave. So) at 7:00 p.m. unless it falls on a holiday. We would then meet on the second Monday..
We try to have a guest speaker each month. If there is a topic that you are interested, let us know and we will do everything we can to bring a speaker in for that topic. Just email us at PFLAGSTCLOUD@GMAIL.COM
I personally have been with PFLAG St. Cloud for 10 years and feel that it has helped me to understand so much about the LGBTQ Community and appreciate everything they are and what they go through. I have been on the board as President and currently serve as Treasurer. Nothing is more gratifying than being able to serve and continue to help educate the public on LGBTQ issues.. Dara Westra
