PFLAG Gaston

Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays

Our Vision. PFLAG envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are 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

We are an accredited chapter of the national PFLAG organization. We believe in extending a welcoming hand, a loving heart and an open mind to all who share our vision of equality and tolerance. All who are LGBT, support the LGBT community or are a family member, friend or associate of an LGBT individual seeking education, support or understanding are welcome to attend.

We meet on the third Thursday of every month at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Gastonia. 7:00 pm. All those who support LGBT members, are LGBT or are questioning their sexuality or the sexuality of a loved one are welcome to attend. We hold a confidential meeting with a different topic of discussion or program at each meeting.
