MEMBERSHIP & DONATIONS
PFLAG Austin offers 4 free support groups to Austin, Texas area parents, families, and friends of LGBTQ people. Whether it is a family in distress because a member just came out, a coworker announcing a gender transition, or someone who has questions, PFLAG Austin is there for you. We educate the community through outreach at public events such as PRIDE and LGBTQ related events. We encourage acceptance in schools. We make our voices heard to politicians in the city and state capitol.
To continue with our non-profit mission we need your support. PFLAG Austin is an officially IRS recognized non-profit group and all of our Austin staff are volunteers. We offer many ways for you to donate.
