To hasten understanding and acceptance by families
The motto of PFLAG Brisbane is “Keeping families together.” PFLAG is very proactive in promoting acceptance and understanding of people who disclose their sexual diversity to family and loved ones. Parents often feel isolated, confused or angry when their loved one “comes out” and this is an important area where PFLAG can offer assistance.
Educating the general community
PFLAG believes it is important that mainstream society understands the negative effect homophobic beliefs and outdated attitudes has on the gay community in general.
Our message is delivered through radio interviews (local, state and national), newspaper articles and speaking to community organisations on a variety of topics relevant to the difficulties of being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
