Greater Boston PFLAG Support Groups


Our support groups are safe and welcoming spaces where you can meet with other community members with LGBTQ+ people in their lives, including families whose children have come out to them, friends and significant others, or those who are interested in learning how to become a better ally to LGBTQ+ people. These groups meet once or twice a month, are run by trained volunteers, most of whom are parents, and are filled with people who can offer support, answer questions, and link you to resources. These meetings are free of charge to attend and all information you share is confidential.
