Forged over 50 years, the PFLAG support model is committed to the principle of "meeting people where they are at". This tradition is proudly carried forward in the unique and locally-tailored support programming of PFLAG Denver. No matter where you are in your journey to acceptance, we have specialized support that can help you. Together, we can work to better understand a loved one's sexual orientation or gender identity, and learn how you can best affirm and support them.
Our support is provided in several ways:
Peer-to-Peer Support Groups
Facilitated by Board Members and volunteers, our peer-to-peer support group meetings offer a safe and welcoming space for parents, caregivers, LGBTQ+ individuals, and allies ages 18+. Come to both learn and unlearn, ask questions, find resources, and build community with individuals and families who can fully see and celebrate yours. In-person and virtual options are available. Learn more.
Need personalized support or can’t make a meeting? Ask us about connecting you with someone in the Denver Metro area who has walked a similar journey and is trusted to provide support. Reach out, and we’ll connect you via phone, text, or email.
Sadly, the unprecedented legislative attacks on LGBTQIA+ Americans, especially transgender youth, have prompted many to consider relocating to states more affirming. At PFLAG Denver, we are privileged to live in Colorado where such impediments to basic safety and access to healthcare has not yet taken root. However, to assist those considering relocating the the Denver Metro area, we have compiled a Relocation Resource. While not comprehensive, we hope that it may assist those forced to navigate heartbreaking and complex family logistics in this time of duress in some small way.
We’ve compiled a list of additional Denver-based peer support, education, advocacy and community resources for families here.
Identity-Centered Support Groups
PFLAG Connects: Communities (PCC) is a program hosted by PFLAG National. These monthly virtual meetups provide a safe, virtual, moderated space where people with shared experiences can connect each month. PFLAG National’s current communities gather people of Latino (English y Español), Black/African American, and Asian American and Pacific Islander backgrounds to gain support, ask questions, and learn from others who have been through similar experiences. These meetings are catered to those who are parents/family members of LGBTQ+ individuals, though members of the LGBTQ+ community who are Latino, Black, or AAPI are also welcomed. Additionally, PFLAG Connects : Communities also hosts a Military Community meeting, in partnership with our friends at the Modern Military Association of America (MMAA).
