Welcome to Jersey Shore PFLAG!

Jersey Shore PFLAG is a nonprofit organization that aims to provide support for the families and allies of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals, and LGBT individuals themselves; education for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBT; and advocacy in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for LGBT people. We are a local chapter of PFLAG National, our parent organization, which envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

We operate locally in Monmouth and Ocean counties of New Jersey. Our chapter hosts three support groups each month and sponsors numerous other events throughout the year. If you or someone you know is gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, we invite you to join us!
