PFLAG has a history of standing by and for those who feel marginalized in our society. To give support and voice to those who may be dismissed and overlooked. While the main focus has been the LGBTQ+ community, PFLAG recognizes that oppression, racism and intolerance can target anybody and any group.
We stand united with those impacted by the use of these symbols that have roots in division, racism and chaos. They are still used to relay this message veiled in the form of “patriotism.” We will continue to use our voices and resources for support until we all are truly free. Free to be seen, valued, heard, accepted and loved for who we are. Not who others think we should be.
“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened” (President John F. Kennedy).
