On March 11, 1973, a group of parents, along with some of their children and other friends, met at Metropolitan-Duane Methodist Church (now Church of the Village) in Greenwich Village. Approximately 20 people attended. That was the start of PFLAG NYC, and the beginning of the movement of parents and families standing up and speaking out for their LGBT children and all LGBT people.

On May 20, 2018, join with us as we gather at Church of the Village for a celebration of the anniversary. In the company of custodians of our history who were at that very first meeting, along with others who have carried PFLAG NYC into the present day, we will celebrate the continuing work of embracing and supporting the LGBT loved ones in our families and our lives.

“You’re in the Wrong Bathroom!” by Laura Erickson-Schroth and Laura Jacobs

Join Us on October 8 and Help Challenge Myths about Trans People

From Laverne Cox and Caitlyn Jenner to trans & queer youth, transgender and gender-nonconforming people are in the media more than ever before, but exposure does not necessarily lead to understanding. In fact, familiarity may help spread information that is incomplete and inaccurate. Come to a PFLAG NYC book talk to change that!

Laura Erickson-Schroth, M.D., and Laura A. Jacobs, LCSW-R, will speak at PFLAG NYC at 3 p.m. on October 8 about their new book, “You’re in the Wrong Bathroom!” — And 20 Other Myths and Misconceptions About Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming People. Read more »
