PFLAG promotes the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through: support, to cope with an adverse society; education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights. Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians And Gays provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
The PFLAG Hanover/Madison chapter was established in 2012 as a branch of the PFLAG National organization that has been around for over 45
years. We are based in Jefferson County, IN and serve southeastern Indiana as well as nearby counties in Kentucky. One of our main goals is to keep families together. To facilitate this goal, we provide a safe place for ALL members to share their feelings and experiences with others who have been down the same road.
Support- We meet twice monthly to provide a support group for LGBTQ individuals, of all ages, and their families and allies.
Education- We host events and share resources to help educate ourselves and our neighbors about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ.
Advocacy- We are vocal and active in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for all LGBTQ individuals.
