Our Story

PFLAG Geelong started in June 2012.  PFLAG is a support group for parents, families and friends of LGBTI people. There are PFLAG groups all over the world and PFLAG has been operating in Australia for over 30 years.

We are the parents, friends and families of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning people.   

We are not affiliated with any religious or political group. We receive support from the City of Greater Geelong’s Youth Development Unit and are supported by the GASP Geelong project.
