If you're on your journey
towards being yourself
or want to help others on theirs

Welcome to our PFLAG family.

Slider

LGBTQ and straight, parents, friends, and allies
building an inclusive and compassionate world.

We do more than sit in circles.

Through peer-to-peer support, educating people on the issues, and advocating for inclusive policies and laws, we keep Portland's LGBTQ folks, families, and friends strong.

PFLAG started with a group of loving parents in a living room, sharing their stories, keeping their families strong. On-line or in-person, the power of that safe space is still at the heart of all that we do.

Knowledge is power. Through the lens of our personal experience, we share the best research - on line and in person, through publications, presentations, and organizational training.

Our GSA mini-grants, student internships, and other programs help LGBTQ youth become proud and confident adults.

Coming Out to Yourself

There's one person you have to come out to before anyone else: yourself.

And that can be the hardest task.

Conal Charles

The Best Thing about Coming Out

The single best thing about coming out of the closet is that nobody can insult you by telling you what you've just told them.

Rachel Maddow

its a really bad idea

It's a really bad idea to set out to change another person.
Instead, set out to love them, and they will become whatever they are supposed to become.

John Pavlovitz

To be yourself

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Straight Boy

It’s tough enough to be a straight boy in a small town high school looking for the love of your life. But at least your possible loves are all out in the open.

Juvenalius

Amazing How

Amazing how eye and skin color come in many shades yet many think sexuality is just gay or straight.

DaShanne Stokes

Coming Out is a Journey

Coming Out is an individual journey taken with everyone you know and everyone who loves you.

Love Isn’t a Choice

Love isn’t a choice. You fall for the person, not their chromosomes.

I.W. Gregorio

Street Youth

40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ.

The #1 reason they're on the street is family rejection.

Queer People

The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.

Rita Mae Brown

Burst Down these Closet Doors

Burst down these closet doors once and for all, and stand up and start to fight.
