Support Groups

Greater Boston PFLAG started with a small group of parents with LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer and questioning) children who began meeting in private homes in Cambridge in 1978. Today we are part of a national grass-roots organization with over 500 PFLAG chapters located throughout the United States and the world. We are parents, families, friends and gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons who are committed to giving support to one another.

Our support groups, which we call chapter meetings, are a great place to get to know other people with LGBTQ family members and friends, and to receive information and support. Meetings are relaxed and informal, and everyone is welcome.  We start with a brief information/business session and devote the remaining time to support. Each person has an opportunity to speak, but no one is pressured. Discussions are completely confidential.

A variety of people attend our meetings; including Parents of LGBTQ and LGBT people. Attendance varies every month and can range from four to 30 people.
