©2005: PFLAG Hartford

Welcome to PFLAG Hartford

Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians & Gays (PFLAG) is a national non-profit organization with over 250,000 members and supporters and over 500 affiliates in the United States. This vast grassroots network is cultivated, resourced and serviced by the PFLAG national office, located in Washington, D.C., the national Board of Directors and 14 Regional Directors.

PFLAG Hartford is a welcoming place for parents, family members and friends of lesbians & gays, but we are much more than that. Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and intersexed people are also encouraged to attend meetings. GLBTI people come with or without family members, and parents, family members and friends come with or without GLBTI loved ones. PFLAG is for YOU!

Donna wrote a poem to honor outgoing presidents John and Becky:


Our Fearless Leaders
John and Becky Glezen

 

A quarter of a century
has marked the changes made.
Great strides in civil rights have come
because of time you gave.
 
You marched the streets of Washington
to make our voices heard.
You met with our state’s leaders,
and challenged hateful words.
 
You learned a special language
filled with acronyms galore,
attended meetings every month
and still came back for more.
 
You stood with us for marriage rights
and full adoption too.
You made trans rights become the law.
We owe a debt to you.

You always stood to hear the names
of trans folks killed by hate.
You shared our sorrow and our joys,
of that there’s no debate.
 
You went to many conferences
both national and here.
You met with churches, opened hearts,
and took away the fear.
 
Your phones were always open
to take calls from parents who
had just heard news surprising,
but YOU knew what to do.
 
We thank you for your leadership,
examples clearly set.
PFLAG is ALWAYS FAMILY,
on that you sure can bet!
