Welcome to PFLAG Hampton!


PFLAG is the nation's largest family and ally organization, with over 350 communities (and growing!) across the U.S. and abroad. Our goal is simple: Uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) with families, friends, and allies,

Our Mission

PFLAG is committed to advancing equality and full societal affirmation of LGBTQ people through its threefold mission of support, education, and advocacy. At PFLAG Hampton, we offer...

SUPPORT

PFLAG Hampton hosts monthly meetings from our location at the Hampton Community Center for parents, family, allies of LGBTQ people, and LGBTQ people themselves. We have a lending library available of literature, and most importantly, we offer comfort and resources: For those coming out, for those struggling with a family member or friend coming out, and for those who want to know more.

EDUCATION

One of our major goals is to work to dispel misconceptions and misinformation in society about LGBTQ people, and to inform and educate others about the particular needs and challenges they face. In addition to our lending library, we are engaged in events in our area, such as the annual True Colors at the University of Connecticut, to help educate ourselves and others.

ADVOCACY

Nationwide, PFLAG has been an important part in conversations with lawmakers about LGBTQ people and rights, and work for equality in schools, the workplace, housing, and in medical care. On a grassroots level, we can be found at the Third Thursday street festival in Willimantic, Connecticut, and in other community spaces and gatherings.

About Our Chapter

 

PFLAG Hampton is the north-eastern Connecticut chapter of PFLAG National, started by four individuals over cups of coffee and cheesecake in a friend's kitchen. Our dedication and mission is the same as our other chapters around the nation. We believe that by offering support, education, and advocacy, we create change and unite LGBTQ individuals with their families, friends, and allies-- Both in the quiet north-eastern corner of Connecticut, and across the world.
