Biographical / Historical

Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) was founded in 1973 in New York City, N.Y. One of the founding members, Betty Fairchild, moved to Denver in 1976 and after a few years of meetings, the Denver Chapter of PFLAG was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1980. The national organization susequently changed its name to: Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. In 2014 the membership of the organization voted to officially change the name to PFLAG to reflect the decades of fully inclusive work it had been doing in the LGBTQ community.
