What is GB PFLAG?
Pretty exciting right? Now, you‘re probably wondering: Who exactly is Greater Boston PFLAG? And what do they do for the LGBTQ+ community? Good questions. Below, we’ll run-through GB PFLAG’s mission and vision (but of course, you’ll find the best info about GB PFLAG–and how to donate–on their website: https://gbpflag.org/).
GB PFLAG’s Mission
Greater Boston PFLAG sets out to advocate for and advance equity and societal affirmation of LGBTQ people by building and strengthening loving families, safe communities, and a diverse and inclusive society.
That’s a big mission to pursue (and an important one). GB PFLAG shoots for this goal with three different initiatives: Support, Education and Advocacy.
- Support: to cope with an adverse society
- Education: to enlighten the public
- Advocacy: to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights
These initiatives are achieved by a slew of different programs and services GB PFLAG offers. These include training workshops, helplines, parent and family support, speakers bureaus, political advocacy and scholarships.
GB PFLAG’s Vision
As GB PFLAG states on their website, all of these programs are fueled by its vision of a world in which LGBTQ individuals are safe, supported, included, and equal in their families, in their communities, and in society.
If GB PFLAG’s vision resonates with you, or you’re looking for support for yourself or an LGBTQ+ loved one, we highly recommend visiting https://gbpflag.org/. That’s the best place to find out more about their programs, donate, or find volunteer opportunities. And from everyone here at Rocketbook, we hope you have a safe and fun Pride month!
