DID YOU KNOW…?
* Many lesbians and gays are aware of their sexual orientation at a very young age.
* Others don’t discover that they are gay, lesbian, or bisexual until adulthood.
* Children cannot be taught to be gay, and homosexuality is not a “lifestyle choice.”
* Children are not “made gay” by their parents.
* It is impossible for gays and lesbians to “become” heterosexual, and trying to do so is emotionally and psychologically harmful.
* More and more churches and religious organizations recognize the value of same-sex relationships and love.
* The American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association have recognized that homosexuality is not a mental or emotional “disorder.”
* Many lesbians and gays have enduring, loving, long-term relationships with their partners.
* Many lesbian and gay couples raise healthy, happy children.
Welcome to PFLAG Pittsburgh’s website!
This website is part of our effort to serve the Pittsburgh LGBT community by posting local and national resources for support, education, and advocacy. We’d love your suggestions. Please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether you are a parent, family member, friend, or LGBT person, you are welcome at PFLAG. We hope you find the resources on this website useful. Something unique to our chapter is our list of Welcoming and Affirming Congregations and Communities of Greater Pittsburgh.
PFLAG promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons, their families and friends through:
SUPPORT, to cope with an adverse society;
EDUCATION, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and
ADVOCACY, to end discrimination and to secure civil rights.
