A Canadian society that embraces and values our inherent diversity.


PFLAG Durham Region

 PFLAG Durham Region is a not for profit organization that is a Chapter of the national charity organization PFLAG Canada. We operate independently, yet are part of the family and are much like an Affiliate or a Franchise. We follow the principles, guidelines and guidance of the National Organization and are recognized for these standards.

PFLAG Durham Region provides support, education and resources on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity/expressions for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer, and questioning persons and their families and friends.

We are the only direct LGBTQ support service provider for youth and all ages in the Durham Region, servicing youth, parents, friends, families and allies.   

PFLAG used to stand for Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. Today PFLAG is a brand name inclusive to all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions.


PFLAG Durham Region Believes….

A person’s quality of life depends significantly on the quality of their personal relationships. When family and friends react with discomfort or judgment after a loved one has come out as LGBTQ, barriers in communication often result and relationships break down. The individual who has come out is likely to lose confidence in their personal support network and this often leads them to question the relationships they have with the wider community.

Communities become vibrant and thrive when people can contribute and participate fully in society.  Support and respect for diversity are not only important to the people and communities that experience it, but also to the wider community that experiences the vitality that results when all people understand they have a role to play.  PFLAG Durham Region believes that its work not only supports individuals and families, but the whole community of Durham Region..
