Who We Are

PFLAG Greater St. Louis envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.  Through our core values of meeting people where they are and collaborating with others, PFLAG seeks to realize our vision through support, education, and advocacy.

Our mission is…

  • To build a foundation of loving families united with LGBTQ+ people and allies who support one another.
  • To educate ourselves and our communities about sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and LGBTQ+ issues.
  • To speak up as advocates until all hearts and minds respect, value and affirm LGBTQ+ people.

PFLAG Greater St. Louis provides community, support and hope to LGBTQ+ people and their parents, families, and friends in the St. Louis area.
