Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) is a socio-political group of family members and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. In 1998 PFLAG welcomed transgender persons and their families as fully participating members. PFLAG has more than 350 affiliates throughout the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 11 other countries.The acronym PFLAG is pronounced "P-FLAG" (/ pi fl /), and until removal of the hyphen in 1993 was officially styled in that manner.The event that sparked PFLAG was in 1972 when Jeanne Manford was watching a TV news report and saw her son "being tossed down an escalator during a gay rights protest while the New York City Police Department stood by and watched."show more
