Founded in 1972 with the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son (Jeanne Manford, pictured), PFLAG is the nation’s largest family and ally organization, with 400 chapters and 200,000 supporters crossing multiple generations of American families
Including Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Mercer Island, Sammamish, Bothell, Woodinville, Duvall, Snoqualmie, and Carnation.

And connection for LGBTQ people, family, and allies, and for those who are interested, opportunities to actively move equality forward.
Through our three tenants of Support, Education, and Advocacy, so that LGBTQ people and their loved ones, including parents, siblings, friends and allies, can come together through understanding.
For LGBTQ people, their family, friends, and allies. We offer peer-to-peer support at our monthly meetings the 3rd Thursday of each month.
For ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing LGBTQ people. We trust in the power of our stories to open hearts and minds.
To change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for LGBTQ people. We have no affiliation with any political party or religion, but work for policies and laws that lead to equality and promote respectful dialogue to engage and persuade people.

As the extended family of the LGBTQ community and its allies, we lead with love to bring change.
