PFLAG DuPage was formed in 2004 when members of the Hinsdale chapter decided we needed support in the far west suburbs of Chicago. The first Chapter meeting was held in January of 2004. We have met without fail at St Paul Lutheran Church every third Sunday since that date. PFLAG DuPage has always been dedicated to providing compassionate support, quality educational programs and strong advocacy for equal rights.

PFLAG is an organization of LGBTQ+ people, parents, families, and allies who work together to create an equitable and inclusive world. We are hundreds of thousands of people and hundreds of chapters from coast to coast who are leading with love to support families, educate allies, and advocate for just, equitable, and inclusive legislation and policies. Since our founding in 1973, PFLAG works every day to ensure LGBTQ+ people everywhere are safe, celebrated, empowered and loved.

Monthly Meetings

PFLAG DuPage meets each month to encourage each other, learn and share ideas.  All are welcome.  You need not be a member to attend. Meetings generally consist of a program such as a guest speaker followed by a group discussion and a bit of social time with light refreshments.
We also maintain a library of LBTBQ+ books and videos that can be checked out at meetings.

That's who we are PFLAG is more than just going to meetings; PFLAG is more than just marching in parades; PFLAG is more than just writing letters; PFLAG is more than just being rabble rousers; PFLAG is people, ordinary people, who love in extraordinary ways, people who can be called upon at a moment's notice to counsel a confused parent or a hurting child, people who stand at the ready to respond to any request for help, to share their wisdom, to share their experience, to share their love. PFLAG is community, community that seeks to serve at all times and in all places. PFLAG isn't limited to people who attend meetings or pay dues. PFLAG is people who have ever been a part of a chapter, people who stand ready to share their wisdom and insight whenever called upon to help. PFLAG is love. That's who we are.
