Finding Support When Someone Close to You Comes Out

Keeping relationships strong and keeping families together when someone comes out is one of PFLAG Pgh's most important activities. PFLAG Pgh's helps parents when they find out that a child is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). Brothers, sisters, and other family members also find information and advice through PFLAG Pgh that helps them better understand and strengthen relationships with LGBT loved ones.

Just as important as serving the families and friends of LGBT people is helping LGBT individuals directly when they experience difficulties coming out and finding acceptance from their families. Coming out is a process that is liberating but also difficult. At PFLAG Pgh, we understand the journey that LGBT people go through as they accept themselves and come out to others. We offer support and unconditional love through that journey.
