Programs

PFLAG Pittsburgh offers a wide array of programs to support you as you support those you love. The opportunities include:

 

Warmline

Support Groups/Adult (via ZOOM)

Groups form at our monthly meetings at the Persad Center
on the second Sunday every month from 2:00pm - 4:30pm.
All are welcome to come participate at whatever level
they are comfortable.

PFLAG Pittsburgh Families Like Ours Facebook Group

A closed (safe) Facebook support group of parents of LGBTQ youth. Contact the Warmline for more information. 
 

Parent 2 Parent Coffee (via ZOOM)

While the Parent 2 Parent Coffees are not official PFLAG Pittsburgh events, we do work in conjunction with the UPMC Gender and Sexual Development Program Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine to provide this opportunity to meet parents of transgender youth in a smaller, one-on-one environment. The coffees meet once a month via ZOOM.
Take a look at the Parent 2 Parent schedule on our Support page or contact the Warmline for dates, times, and locations.   


"We would love to welcome you to our parent-to-parent coffee!
This informal gathering allows us as parents of transgender, gender nonconforming and gender questioning children to connect. This is a parent run event, open only to parents and direct caregivers of these children. We respect each other's confidentiality and the fact that we may be in different stages
of this journey. We all have felt very alone and confused at times, and have found that connecting with other parents of gender nonconforming children to be a great relief.
Join us online for a ZOOM get together."
