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 two 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!

Parents, Families, and LGB support meeting

2nd Monday of every month in Toms River
This is a large and diverse support group that includes parents, families, allies, and individuals who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual, seeking support and education pertaining to LGBT issues. We encourage transgender people and their family members to attend the transgender support group.

Transgender / Transfamilies support meeting

3rd Monday of every month in Shrewsbury
Our Transgender / Transfamilies support group is open to transgender people and their parents, families, friends, and allies. It offers support and education regarding gender identity and related topics.

* Please note – All minors (under the age of 18) who come to a PFLAG meeting must attend with their parent or legal guardian, or have a signed letter from their parent or guardian giving them permission to attend.
