Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays started with a single mom marching with her son in 1972 in New York. The organization now has over 400 chapters in the U.S. providing support, education, and advocacy for parents and their LGBTQIA+ children.
PFLAG Melbourne/Space Coast is a valuable local resource for parents and children. Along with the Rainbow Youth and T-NET subgroups, they provide a safe welcoming space for parents to learn from other parents, for questioning teens to talk to other questioning teens. Our annual donation continues to help support their mission.
Project Response was founded in 1990 and is a lifeline for over 1,400 people in the area living with HIV. They provide case management, education, and testing. We support their
efforts through monetary donations and Drag Thru Food Drop, which helps replenish their pantry.
