To promote the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons, their families and friends through support to cope with an adverse society, education to enlighten an ill-informed public, and advocacy to end discrimination and secure equal civil rights. PFLAG New Orleans provides opportunities for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
PFLAG New Orleans is one of the oldest organizations serving the LGBT community in New Orleans. What we do best is provide support to LGBT+ individuals, families, and friends in distress about coming out, acceptance of gender identity, and living in a challenging community. Advocating for LGBT+ rights is a focus, especially in a climate that often places Trans rights in its crosshairs. PFLAG New Orleans also awards dozens of scholarships each year to aspiring local LGBT+ students, assists other organizations and companies with outreach events, and provide sensitivtiy training. Lastly, we are one of the only chapters with a weekly radio show and are regularly featured on podcasts and TV.
