Monthly Peer Support Group Meetings


Our Peer Support groups provide a safe and welcoming space to meet other parents and caregivers of LGBTQ youth or loved ones, ask questions, and learn about area resources. These groups meet monthly and are facilitated by volunteers, many of whom are parents themselves.  Charlotte meetings include educational programming.

Additional Peer Support through PFLAG Charlotte

One-to-One – Can’t make a meeting?  Ask us about connecting you with someone who has walked a similar journey.  We’ll connect you via phone, text, or email.

Private online support group – Are you a parent or caregiver of a gender diverse or transgender youth?  Through a private online facebook group, we provide a safe space for parents and caregivers to ask questions and share resources.

Workshop for Parents and Caregivers

Offered quarterly, “Navigating Your Child’s and Your Family’s Journey” is a peer led educational program, now offered in English and Spanish. Learn LGBTQ nomenclature, hear how other parents have helped their loved ones mitigate challenges and build resilience, and learn about a wide range of resources available to help you on your journey.  Visit our Events page for additional information.

“There is no playbook.  You’re going to have some curveballs along the way, and it’s important to know you’re not alone in your journey.  For many of us, knowing how best to support our LGBTQ loved ones is a mystery.  Having an organization like PFLAG Charlotte gives you a community of peers to discuss your experiences with.  Whether you need advice, legal/medical recommendations, or just an ear to tell your story to, PFLAG offers a wealth of experience, knowledge, and open arms.”
