When your child or loved one comes to you and shares that they are LGBTQ, you may not know where to even begin to show them you love and support them. PFLAG is made up of moms, dads, family, and friends who can help by sharing their stories and experiences. You have a home at PFLAG. You can talk to a volunteer for support by calling the Helpline at 713-46-PFLAG (713-467-3524) or by email at HelplinePFLAGHouston@gmail.com. When calling, please leave a message and a volunteer will call you back.
Our general meetings are held in person at the Montrose Center on the second Sunday of each month. These monthly meetings feature announcements and an educational program focusing on issues impacting the LGBTQ community and those who love them (some months have a social event instead).
PFLAG Houston also holds weekly peer-led confidential support groups in various locations around the Houston area. We support each other by sharing our stories, both the good and the difficult. Please see below for schedule and locations.
Children and youth are welcome to attend general meetings, but support groups are most appropriate for adults. Hatch Jr., a youth program of the Montrose Center for ages 7-12, is held at the same time as our general meetings.
Come Join Us at the October General Meeting (10/8)!
The October General Meeting will be held on Sunday, October 8, 2023, at 2:00 PM.
We will honor Hispanic Heritage Month with Somos LOUD. Latino Outreach & Understanding Division (LOUD) was founded in 2013 by Latinos determined to make a difference in their communities. LOUD works to fight against HIV/ AIDS in underserved communities, as well as supports critical latin issues. LOUD has chapters across the country that focus on specific regional needs such as citizen workshops, grant writing, the importance of mental health, and more.
Hatch Jr. for children aged 7-12 will run at the same time.
Small support groups will begin at 3:15pm in rooms 112/113 and last about an hour. Hatch Jr. programming will run during this time as well.

Calling all volunteers! PFLAG Houston is looking for people to join our volunteer list for community events such as tabling and speaking engagements. Joining the list will let you get emails when one of these opportunities comes up, and if it's something you're interested in, just reply back and we can set you up with everything you need to represent PFLAG at the event.
Looking for more ways to get involved? PFLAG Houston is searching for board members for the upcoming board term! We have a number of positions available and if you let us know early, you will have the chance to shadow the outgoing board member to learn the role. New board members will start in October 2023. Email us or talk to one of the current board members at the next general meeting if you're interested!
