Princeton NJ Area Chapter

PFLAG - The nation's largest family-based group of its kind - began in 1972, when a courageous mother marched with her gay son in New York City's gay pride parade. Her single voice - calling on society to treat all of its citizens equally and with dignity - sparked a national movement. Since then, tens of thousands of ordinary Americans have joined forces as PFLAG.

Our Vision:
PFLAG envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people respected, valued and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

Our Mission:
By meeting people where they are and collaborating with others, PFLAG realizes its vision through

Support for families, allies and people who are LGBTQ

Education for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ

Advocacy in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ

The Princeton Area Chapter of PFLAG  was formed in 1999 by a group of parents who had recently experienced a son or daughter coming out as gay or lesbian, and who wanted to come together to learn from one another and to provide support for parents and their children who are struggling to cope with the pressures and misunderstandings associated with being gay and lesbian.

The Transgender Network (T-Net) sub-group formed in 2013 to provide a safe, nonjudgmental environment for family members, friends, and allies of transgender and gender variant people. Guests and members attending a T-Net meeting have the opportunity to explore issues confronting them when a loved one comes out as transgender. Some months, T-Net meets separately, while other months the group joins the PFLAG meeting.
