SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS

PFLAG conducts several free support group meetings every month in and around the Atlanta metropolitan area. Even if the meeting date falls on a holiday, we still meet as usual. Meetings are FREE to attend. All are welcome – lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and parents, families, and straight allies are invited. You are also welcome to bring someone who can support you – a spouse, child, relative, friend, or neighbor.

Who Should Attend

Parents, family, and friends who are dealing with the news of a loved one coming out, as well as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender people are all encouraged to attend our support group meetings. If you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender and would like to come out to your family and friends and are looking for ways to come out, this is an excellent place to get support and ideas that have worked for others.

Currently, our Sunday afternoon group is in person.  The Monday evening and Atlanta Gender Variations groups are via Zoom.

Each group is led by a trained facilitator. We value confidentiality in our support groups because it allows people to share openly. You may say as much or as little as you like, no one will ever force you say a word. In the warm and supportive atmosphere many newcomers find they are able to put troubling thoughts and fears into words for the first time, and receive reassurance, guidance, and information.

The important distinction between a PFLAG support group and a counseling or therapy session is that we try not to give you advice. We believe in the power of listening and sharing our stories and experiences as a tool for self-development. PFLAG’s goal is to keep families together by promoting understanding and love.
