Welcome to PFLAG Richmond!
We are part of a national organization that works to promote the dignity and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people and of their families and friends.
We envision a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

New Meeting Location!
For over 20 years, PFLAG Richmond has been holding its Tuesday chapter meetings at Side By Side (formerly ROSMY). However, Side By Side now needs the space to accommodate the record attendance at its Tuesday youth support meetings. We hate to leave, but celebrate the fact that more LGBTQ teens are reaching out to Side By Side for support.
We are ushering in 2018 with our new meeting location: the Classroom at Diversity Richmond, located at 1407 Sherwood Avenue. Enter Diversity's Door #2 to reach the Classroom.
Welcome, Danica Roem
In mid-January, a transgender woman named Danica Roem, will take her seat in the Virginia legislature. Her victory, especially against social conservative and LGBT opponent Robert Marshall, makes history and represents hope for transgender youth everywhere.
From PFLAG National
PFLAG National stands with Charlie Craig in his suit against the Masterpiece Cakeshop due to its refusal to bake a cake for his same-sex wedding.
"We stand together and refuse to go back, refuse to bow to anyone’s view of us as unworthy of service in any business, in any situation.
We refuse to accept the erosion of our basic rights -- and to declare our love for LGBTQ families everywhere. It is not only cake that must be served - but Justice."
