National PFLAG Vision
We, the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered 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 welcomes the participation and support of all who share in, and hope to realize, this vision.
National PFLAG Mission
Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered
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.
PFLAG provides an opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that
is helathy and respectful of human diversity.
National PFLAG Strategic Goals
I. Build the capacity of our organization at every level so that we may have all the resources, in the form of information,
people and funding, necessary to move forward in our work with the greatest possible effect.
II. Create a world in which our young people may grow up and be educated with freedom from fear
of violence, bullying and other forms of discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived gender identity or sexual orientation
or that of their families.
III. Make our vision and our message accessible to the broadest range of ethnic and cultural
communities, ending the isolation of families with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender family members within those communities.
IV. Work toward full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons within their
chosen communities of faith.
V. Create a society in which all GLBT persons may openly and safely pursue the career path of
their choice, and may be valued and encouraged to grow to their full potential in the workplace.
VI. Create a society in which all gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons may enjoy,
in every aspect of their lives, full civil and legal equality and may participate fully in all the rights, privileges and
obligations of full citizenship in this country.
