PFLAG Los Angeles is committed to the work of ending the violence and systemic racism that daily injures Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color. We welcome people of all ethnic groups, cultural backgrounds and nationalities, caring deeply for their dignity, equality and well-being.
People of Color have played a vital role in the struggle for LGBTQ equality right from its beginning. We honor the courageous pioneers of color who launched the Stonewall riots and founded the Gay Liberation Front: Marsha P Johnson, a Black transgender woman; Sylvia Rivera, a Latinx gay liberation and transgender rights activist; and Miss Major, a transgender elder and activist.
Reaching communities of color with the PFLAG message of support, education, and advocacy has been and remains a priority of our chapter, led by our African American and Latino board members.
While supporting LGBTQ individuals and their families in communities of color is our mission, we cannot be blind to the crushing inequality that burdens them. None of us can do everything to overcome this injustice, but all of us can do something.
