About Us


PFLAG is an organization of LGBTQ+ people, parents, families, and allies who work together to create an equitable and inclusive world. We are hundreds of thousands of people and hundreds of chapters from coast to coast who are leading with love to support families, educate allies, and advocate for just, equitable, and inclusive legislation and policies.
Since our founding in 1973, PFLAG works every day to ensure LGBTQ+ people everywhere are safe, celebrated, empowered and loved. Learn more, find support, donate, and take action at PFLAG.org.

Learn more on the PFLAG National website.

PFLAG chapters are governed by volunteer leadership elected by their chapter members. The network operates a National office whose primary role is to support the work of PFLAG’s chapter network and to promote PFLAG’s presence in the national arena, including Congress and the Executive Branch, coalitions with organizations who share our goals, and the media.

PFLAG Portland is one of the oldest chapters in the PFLAG network, with a 40 year history of support to the LGBTQ community.
