Mission: By meeting people where they are and collaborating with others, PFLAG realizes its vision through: Support for families, allies and people who are LGBTQ+; Education for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ+; and Advocacy in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ+.

Key "Partner" Groups:
PTK (Parents of Trans Kids) DELAWARE. PTK offers twice-monthly support group meetings for parents of transgender and gender-expansive children. In addition, they provide gender identity and expression support, advocacy and education to our community. Support group meetings are both virtual (Zoom) and in-person. For additional details click here.
PTK Youth Group. This informal monthly peer support and social gathering was designed by the coordinators of PTK (Parents of Trans Kids) to provide a safe space for youth who are transgender or gender diverse to connect, express, and ask questions of one another and their mentor. Youth between the ages of 10-21 are welcome to attend; exceptions made when youth outside those age parameters are interested and would benefit. Currently, meetings are held remotely and moderated by a licensed psychotherapist and former educator. Contact PTKDelaware@gmail.com for information about the parent group and contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about youth meetings.
Zoom sessions held 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7:00 - 8:15PM
