Welcome to PFLAG-NH

A Message from PFLAG National Executive Director, Jody Huckaby:

Today the world has lost a pioneer: Jeanne Manford, the founder of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) and the Mother of the Straight Ally movement.

Jeanne was one of the fiercest fighters in the battle for acceptance and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. It is truly humbling to imagine in 1972 - just 40 years ago - a simple schoolteacher started this movement of family and ally support, without benefit of any of the technology that today makes a grassroots movement so easy to organize. No Internet. No cellphones. Just a deep love for her son and a sign reading "Parents of Gays: Unite in Support for Our Children."

This simple and powerful message of love and acceptance from one person resonated so strongly it was heard by millions of people worldwide and led to the founding of PFLAG, an organization with more than 350 chapters across the U.S. and 200,000 members and supporters, and the creation of similar organizations across the globe.

Jeanne's work was called "the story of America…of ordinary citizens organizing, agitating, educating for change, of hope stronger than hate, of love more powerful than any insult or injury," in a speech by President Barack Obama in 2009.

All of us - people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and straight allies alike - owe Jeanne our gratitude. We are all beneficiaries of her courage. Jeanne Manford proved the power of a single person to transform the world. She paved the way for us to speak out for what is right, uniting the unique parent, family, and ally voice with the voice of LGBT people everywhere.


Parents, Family, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays is an international organization dedicated to the preservation of families in loving relationships, to the education of an ill-informed public about homosexuality, and to the attainment of full civil rights for gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual people and their families. Nationally, PFLAG has over 250,000 members and supporters and over 500 affiliate chapters.

New Hampshire is home to 4 active PFLAG chapters, so there's probably one closer to home than you might think. We provide support to parents, children, and friends who are coming to terms with their gay, lesbian, bisexual, trangender, intersex, and questioning loved ones. All are welcome at our monthly meetings.
