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.

From PFLAG National
"In today's military, there are brave transgender people serving our country openly and proudly with 134,000 retired veterans, having done so with honor and sacrifice. The Commander-in-Chief demeans them with his latest tweetstorm proclamations. PFLAG stands proudly with them, their families, and future transgender individuals who would put their lives at risk for all of us ...."
"PFLAG's vision of an inclusive, respectful America will prevail. Our country is better than this."
