Finding Personal Support
We know it’s sometimes difficult for a parent to accept that a child is gay. It can be unexpected. It can raise fears for a child’s safety and other feelings. We know because we’ve been there.
Education and support are essential elements on the path to understanding and acceptance. Our help line, one-to-one parent support, and chapter meetings are a wonderful way to meet other parents and LGBT people to get support and information.

Trained parent and family volunteers are available to answer questions, listen, and provide resources. Our volunteers are parents with LGBT sons or daughters, and siblings of LGBT adults. They have offered to listen to and share their experience with other parents or family members. All calls are confidential and anonymous.
One-to-One Parent Support
If you wish to speak more extensively over the phone or in person with one of our trained volunteers, we offer one-to-one parent support. We match your situation to that of one of our volunteers – a dad with a gay son can speak to another dad if he wishes. All meetings are confidential.
Each Greater Boston PFLAG chapter holds meetings that are support groups, led by a trained facilitator, for parents of LGBT children and LGBT people. Groups are located throughout Greater Boston and are confidential. See a list of support groups.
