Welcome to PFLAG Canada - Peterborough ON

The initials, PFLAG, stand for Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, but over the years came to include the whole LGBTQ community, their family, friends, and allies.We are born. Just the way we are.
PFLAG Canada - Peterborough ON, a chapter of PFLAG Canada, provides support, education, and resources on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer, and questioning persons and their families and friends.
We are available to listen and help you find additional resources when you feel alone, have questions, or need someone to talk with when a family member or friend comes out.
We actively bring awareness to Peterborough's diverse community through our information tables and Special Projects.
We all are volunteers and always welcome new members.
Call 705-749-9723 for information about volunteering.
