Our amazing team of volunteers are committed to helping the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies. Our support groups are geared towards individuals, families, friends and allies of gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, transgender and questioning people.
Founded in 1973 after the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son, PFLAG is the nation’s largest family and ally organization. Our local chapter, PFLAG Cedar Rapids, started meeting in the Fall of 2010 and was officially accepted as a chapter of PFLAG National in the Fall of 2011. Since then we have seen many changes in the landscape of equality and acceptance. We collaborate locally and have been instrumental in the onset of the local LGBTQIA+ resource coalition.
