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 ushering in 2018 with our new meeting location at Diversity Richmond, located at 1407 Sherwood Avenue. Check the specific meeting day to find out the exact room
At the Va General Assembly - Shame!
Well, despite impressive gains in last year's election results, we still have a way to go!
A Virginia House of Delegates subcommittee killed four bills to ban LGBT discrimination in housing and employment. Another subcommittee voted down HB 1466, which would have prevented health insurance companies operating within Virginia from refusing to cover transgender-related health care.
