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 gender non-conforming people.
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.
Come and join us! Support - Advocacy - Education

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 now meeting in the conference room at Diversity Richmond, located at 1407 Sherwood Avenue.
U. S. Supreme Court Sides with Baker
In a narrow decision, the Supreme Court voted 7-2 in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
Black Pride RVa Event
Virginia's first Black Pride RVa event took place at various locations in Richmond from July 20 thru July 22. Organizers felt that it was important to create an intentional space for LGBTQ people of color to celebrate who they are. Black Pride RVA provided an opportunity to have that celebration freely, within the lived intersections of the Black and LGBTQ communities.
As community organizer Lacette Cross noted, "We’re not all the same gay, the same bi, the same queer. There’s a beauty in our diversity.”
