PFLAG Central Kentucky Welcomes You!

Support, Education, and Advocacy

PFLAG Central Kentucky seeks to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for LGBTQ+ individuals and their parents, families, and loved ones to explore feelings and struggles with coming to terms when a loved one comes out. 


No matter where you are on your journey, PFLAG Central Kentucky is here to help you!

PFLAG Central Kentucky at a Glance

Our Identity

We are:

  • LGBTQ+ persons who want to be part of a supportive community

  • Straight spouses with LGBTQ+ partners

  • Parents and family members of children who identify as gay, lesbian, transgender, and non-binary

We understand that everyone comes from different backgrounds and levels of acceptance, that time is needed to "catch up" with loved ones when they come out.  Some are scared or angry and having a hard time accepting.  Some are confused but wish to be supportive.  Yet others are fully accepting and supportive.  Everyone's path is valid and we hope to support you on your journey!

Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.

Education

Research and experience overwhelmingly shows that LGBTQ+ individuals with accepting families and strong support networks have better outcomes than those who do not, with respect to virtually all measures of health and well-being.  This fact motivates our mission to provide education in our communities.

Advocacy

Advocacy is something that PFLAG Central Kentucky takes very seriously and we are working to make a positive impact.  We are active in the Ban Conversion Therapy movement in Kentucky and routinely partner with allied organizations to effect change and make lives better for our LGBTQ+ loved ones and allies.
