Welcome to PFLAG Hartford!
PFLAG is the nation's largest family and ally organization, uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer+ (LGBTQ+) with families, friends, and allies. PFLAG is committed to advancing equality and full societal affirmation of LGBTQ+ people through its threefold mission of support, education, and advocacy.
PFLAG Hartford offers SUPPORT through our monthly meetings for parents, family, and allies of LGBTQ+ people and LGBTQ+ people themselves. We offer an extensive lending library, give-away literature, and help-lines. We provide comfort and resources for those who may be struggling with the coming out of a loved one, or facing discrimination because of their gender identity.
PFLAG Hartford provides EDUCATION about LGBTQ+ people and their families. Through our literature, our presence through tabling events, and talks at schools, conferences, and other organizations, we dispel misinformation and fear about differences in sexual orientation and gender identity, and we inform people about our particular needs and challenges.
PFLAG Hartford is also about ADVOCACY for LGBTQ+ people and their families. We shape and guide conversations with lawmakers about LGBTQ+ people, and garner support for equality in schools, the workplace, housing, and medical care. We partner with other organizations doing this work, and through our Brill Scholarships we support young people who are working for equality.
Through support, education, and advocacy, PFLAG Hartford is helping make our community a healthier, more well-informed, safer, fairer, and happier place for LGBTQ+ people, their families, and their loved ones. Please explore our website, come to a meeting, drop us an email, or give us a call to see what PFLAG Hartford can do for you!
