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 [email protected] .

Support Meetings

April 11 (Tuesday) - Bend Location


Movie Night:  For the Bible Tells Me So

Bring Movie Snacks/Drinks


Delving into values of the religious right and the accompanying homophobia, "For the Bible Tells Me So" focuses on how conservative Christians' interpretation of the Bible is commonly used as a way to deny homosexuals equal rights. Following five families with an openly gay son or daughter, director Daniel G. Karslake offers a firsthand look at how those in the Christian community with an out child are affected by the homophobic fervor. Karslake also interviews a number of religious leaders.
