Welcome to PFLAG Bellevue/Eastside

Thank you for visiting our website! For details on its use and contents, see Our Website.

PFLAG Bellevue/Eastside is a chapter of PFLAG National serving residents of East King County communities, including Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Mercer Island, Sammamish, Bothell, Woodinville, Duvall, Snoqualmie, and Carnation.

We are a support, education, and advocacy group for the LGBTQ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer) and include LGBTQ people, their family members, and LGBTQ and straight allies. As a grassroots all-volunteer organization, we offer peer-to-peer support in a safe confidential space, where we speak from our hearts and tell our stories. Wherever you are on your journey—just starting out or a long-standing member/ally of the LGBTQ community—PFLAG Bellevue/Eastside is here for you.

Members, guests, and newcomers are welcome to attend our Monthly Meetings held the third Thursday of the month. We start with confidential support circles, followed by refreshments and then a guest speaker. Consult Monthly Meetings FAQ for details.
