PARENTS, FAMILY, FRIENDS OF LESBIANS AND GAYS OF WILMINGTON, NC
Welcome to PFLAG Wilmington. We meet the first Thursday of each month. Each meeting provides time and our best attention for any newcomers or people with an urgent need. Our agenda includes Support, Education and Advocacy.PFLAG Wilmington is about family. It is about standing strong for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning children and friends.
PFLAG Wilmington promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through SUPPORT, to cope with an adverse society; through EDUCATION, to enlighten an ill-informed public, and through ADVOCACY, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights. PFLAG Wilmington provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
We, the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons celebrate diversity and envision a society that embraces everyone, including those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. Only with respect, dignity and equality for all will we reach our full potential as human beings, individually and collectively. PFLAG Wilmington welcomes the participation and support of all who share in and hope to realize this vision.
We encourage people sharing their concerns regarding sexual orientation and gender identity issues. In addition, we welcome participants sharing their efforts and experiences in seeking parental understanding and acceptance.
PFLAG Wilmington believes in promoting change through education. At some of our monthly meetings, an educational program will be presented followed by a short discussion of the material presented.
We advocate for equal and civil rights as well as equal treatment of all LGBTQ persons including marriage equality and civil rights, safe schools, hate crime legislation, employment discrimination legislation, and fair adoption laws.
