Our vision.

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 welcomes the participation and support of all who share in, and hope to realize this vision.

Our mission.

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 and ill-informed public, and ADVOCACY, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights.  PFLAG provides opportunities for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity. 

Meetings

PFLAG Central Oregon meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month.


Where:  Nativity Lutheran Church

60850 Brosterhous Rd., Bend

6:30 PM (6:15 for library usage and refreshments)


This facility is ADA accessible.


Nativity Lutheran Church is  LGBTQ  friendly and a very welcoming location. 

Meetings are confidential and include introductions, "PFLAG Moments" where people share if they have had encounters where they were able to support someone, educate someone about gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender issues or advocates on behalf of our LGBTQ loved ones.  We usually have a social event, a speaker or a topic for the evening and occasionally we have break-out support groups depending on the need.  We try to make everyone feel welcome whether you are a parent, who has just learned their child is gay or you are a LGBTQ person yourself who is struggling with your identity or coming out. Feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable in.  We're a relaxed group and accept people as they are!  Please join us!

We also have parents who are willing to meet with other parents one on one if that is more to your comfort level. 


Please call our Infoline at 541-728-3843 or e-mail us at pflagcentraloregon@gmail.com .

OCTOBER 10

Movie:  Doin' Time in the NoMo HoMo Halfways House with Peterson Toscano.


See for yourself what happens behind the doors of America's zaniest ex-gay residential program. Peterson Toscano presents his one-man comedy. Through seven characters Toscano takes you on a comic tour of the Homo No Mo Halfway House, a Christian residential 12-Step program that attempts to save men and women from the "evil snares of homosexuality" through bizarre rules, gender realignment, and brain numbing reconditioning. From the daily rap sessions on appropriate male dress to the surreal Family and Friends Weekend, prepare yourself for a rocky and raucous tour of the house, and see for yourself if our hero comes OUT alive! Based on Toscano's real life experience floundering in various Ex-gay ministries, he weaves together humor, program jargon and outrageous eye witness accounts to form a piece that is hilarious, poignant and inspirational.
