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!

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!
Ways We Help
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
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 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.
PFLAG Central Kentucky provides monthly confidential support group meetings to allow attendees the opportunity to process their feelings during their unique journey to acceptance in a safe, non-judgmental space.
