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.

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

Gavin Grimm Wins Court Ruling
A federal judge in Virginia has found in favor of a transgender student whose efforts to use the boys' bathroom at his high school reached the Supreme Court and sparked a national debate about the rights of transgender students. The judge denied a motion by the school board of Gloucester County, Virginia, to dismiss the lawsuit brought by Gavin Grimm, maintaining that Title IX and the Constitution protect transgender students from exclusionary bathroom polices. Gavin has graduated from high school, but is determined to keep fighting for the rights of other students.
