About Rockland PFLAG: When PFLAG was initially created in the 1970s it meant Parents and Friends of Lesbians And Gays. PFLAG is the extended family of the LGBTQIA community. We are made up of LGBTQIA individuals, family and allies working together.
It is impossible to overstate the impact of one parent or family member listening to, seeking help from, and offering love and acceptance to another. In a culture steeped in denial about massive inequalities and the depression and hopelessness they engender, PFLAG creates tiny moments of truth and hope among people whose love for their LGBTQIA family members and friends sometimes comes into conflict with established authorities in their lives—whether it be religious institutions, employers, or government actors including police, courts, or family services, educators, coaches, doctors, or extended family.
