Welcome to PFLAG Wilmington Delaware
PFLAG is the extended family of the LGBTQ community. We are LGBTQ individuals, family members and allies of the LGBTQ community.
Vision: PFLAG envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Mission: By meeting people where they are and collaborating with others, PFLAG realizes its vision through: Support for families, allies and people who are LGBTQ; Education for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ; and Advocacy in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ.
Support Group Meetings: We meet to provide support and information on the 2nd Thursday of every month from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. Prior to COVID, we met at Westminster Presbyterian Church (13th and Rodney Street/1502 West 13th Street, Wilmington, DE 19806).
