White River Valley PFLAG Serves Spencer, Bloomington, Martinsville, and the surrounding communities in south central Indiana.
PFLAG is a national not-for-profit organization with a membership of over 77,000 households and more than 425 affiliates world-wide. This vast grassroots network is developed, supported, and services by the PFLAG national office (located in Washington, D.C.), the National Board of Directors, and the Regional Directors’ Council.
We, the parents, families, and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons, celebrate diversity and envision a society that embraces everyone, regardless of 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 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 an ill-informed public; and advocacy to end discrimination and secure equal civil rights. PFLAG promotes opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity and acts to create a healthy and respectful society.
Our History & Goals
White River Valley PFLAG was founded to provide a venue for education, support, and social activities for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community and their families, friends, and allies.
We have a member-elected board of officers and are a chartered not-for-profit organization. We belong to the national PFLAG organization based in Washington, D.C.
One of our goals is to assist families in coping with the discrimination that results from having a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender family member. To that effect, we provide a safe and confidential environment to express and share feelings and experiences.
