We come from all walks of life.
We are moms and dads, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends, children and allies.
We come from large cities and small towns. We live in rural areas.
We are people of color.
We come from all economic backgrounds and all faith traditions.
We are disabled. We are youth and we are elderly.
We are people who believe that respect, dignity and equality are due to all people as the tools that allow us to reach our full potential as human beings, individually and collectively.
Our membership and our leadership are diverse, but what we have in common is our commitment to grow beyond false and harmful perceptions of LGBT people, to educate our communities, and to stand up for full equal rights and protections for LGBT people.
- Providing a supportive, loving environment for all members of our community, including those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities.
- Creating an environment of safety and acceptance for those who have experienced discrimination or who have felt marginalized. ‘
- Educating families and communities on sexual orientation, gender identity and LGBT issues.
- Supporting LGBT people, their families and their friends through helplines, support group meetings and a variety of resources.
- True respect, which has everything to do with feeling real connections to one other.
As a small, rural chapter of PFLAG, we in the Floyd community welcome your participation in whatever positive ways you are able to involve yourself.
We are actively working to increase our online presence so as to make it easier for those who cannot make it to meetings to take part in our work and community regardless of where they live.
Contact us today to help build a safe, supportive community for all.
Floyd PFLAG usually meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Jessie Peterman Memorial Library with a shared meal at 6 pm and meeting to follow until 8 pm. We hope you can join us! See our calendar for more information.
