Keeping relationships strong and keeping families together when someone comes out is one of PFLAG's most important activities. PFLAG Gainesville helps parents when they find out that a child is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). Other family members and friends can also find information and advice through PFLAG to help them better understand and strengthen relationships with LGBT loved ones.
Just as important as serving the families and friends of LGBT people is helping LGBT individuals directly when they experience difficulties coming out and finding acceptance from their families. Coming out is a process that is liberating but also difficult. At PFLAG Gainesville, we encourage patience and understanding for the journey that LGBT people go through as they accept themselves and come out to others. We offer support, advice, and unconditional love through that journey.
