FIND SUPPORT

Peer Support Group Meetings

Offering a safe and welcoming space for parents, friends, LGBTQ+ individuals and allies. Ages 18+.

Our Peer Support groups provide an opportunity to learn, ask questions, and connect with others — either in person or virtually. These groups meet monthly and are facilitated by volunteers, many of whom are parents themselves. Charlotte meetings may also include educational programming. Registration is required; the links below are updated at the beginning of each month.

Charlotte in person meetings are generally the second Monday evening of the month; virtual meetings are generally the third Tuesday evening of the month; North Meck in person meetings are generally the fourth Wednesday evening of the month. Registration is required; the links below are updated at the beginning of each month.

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 groups – Are you a parent or caregiver of an LGBTQ+ individual?  Through two private online Facebook groups, we provide a safe space for parents and caregivers to ask questions and share resources. Email support@pflagcharlotte.org for details.
