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] .

To my Peeps far and wide...

I am part of an amazing organization called PFLAG. For those of you outside of the LGBT community, PFLAG is the largest organization in the U.S. for parents, families, friends, and allies united with people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ). With more than 500 chapters across the U.S., we have more than 200,000 members and supporters.

The Central Oregon branch of PFLAG is small but we are determined - and that determination equates to bringing education and support to a growing LGBTQ community here.

In we are hosting the Annual Drag Show in Bend with Poison Waters & Friends and I'm looking for sponsors. Sponsorship can be as little as $100 or as much as your heart can muster. PFLAG is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) so your contribution is tax deductible AND we'll plaster your name on everything. Could it get better than that?

The LGBTQ community is getting younger with each passing day - if we aren't here to hold some hands on that long path, who will be? To quote Harvey Milk "you've got to give them hope"

Can you join with me and provide a little hope for our community?
