About PFLAG of Fort Wayne

Our Mission Statement

Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons, their families and friends through; SUPPORT, to encourage a healthy family and community perspective; EDUCATION, to enlighten the public; and ADVOCACY, to secure equal civil and human rights. PFLAG provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.

 

WHY WE'RE HERE:

 With lifetimes of myths and misinformation about homosexuality and transgendered people, many don't know where to turn when they find out a family member or friend is gay or trans. PFLAG Fort Wayne offers a non-judgmental outlet that can help you realize you are not alone with your questions and your feelings. Both families and g/l/b/t individuals go through a similar process before they learn more and become more accepting and loving of themselves and one another. We provide direct support to people needing answers to their questions with our ongoing sharings, video presentations, lending library, and speakers. Through understanding we become more accepting and loving.

OUR MEETINGS:

 

typical meeting As parents, family and friends, we meet with our g/l/b/t loved ones to listen, share and love. We come together in order to bring understanding and acceptance for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender friends and family members. Everyone is welcome. A cardinal rule of PFLAG is confidentiality. Through supporting one another and our education we become able to embrace and later become advocates for our loved ones. Meetings are usually small with from six to twelve people attending.

(No one is ever photographed for publication without permission for reasons of confidentiality.)


WHEN and WHERE:


We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00p.m Plymouth Congregational Church
501 W. Berry Street (corner of Fairfield and Berry)
For more information call 260-749-4987 or
e-mail pflagfortwayne@gmail.com


We are grateful that Plymouth (an affirming church) offers us a meeting room; however, PFLAG-FW is not affiliated with any religious group. Individually, each member is free to chose or not to chose to belong to a chruch or other religious institution.

CONFIDENTIALITY:

 A cardinal rule of PFLAG is confidentiality. What is said and who is seen at our gatherings must stay within the event. GLBT people, their families and friends share their experiences and offer support. PFLAG meetings are a safe haven where judgment is reserved and confidentiality is respected. Breaking this rule may result in exclusion of the violator from future activities. (And once again, no one is ever photographed for publication without permission for reasons of confidentiality.)

Some day, this will not make a difference because people will have grown in their understanding. As for now, we will continue to respect each person's privacy and comfort level.

THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION:

 PFLAG, is a non-profit organization of which PFLAG-Fort Wayne is an affiliate. It has a membership of over 80,000 households and more than 464 affiliates worldwide. These grassroots affiliates are provided resources and services by the PFLAG national office, located in Washington, D.C. Check www.pflag.org for more information.
