PFLAG

Every day, PFLAG Canada London volunteers are contacted by frightened adolescents and by angry, fearful or ashamed parents. PFLAG Canada London supports, educates and provides resources to anyone with questions or concerns. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. PFLAG Canada London is one of the local voices that speaks for a more accepting Canadian society by providing support, education and resources on issues of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression

We meet the third Monday of every month at the Middlesex-London Health Unit. All members of the LGBTQ community and/or their families or friends who are looking for support are invited to attend. We welcome youth, parents, siblings and friends to our meeting where we offer peer support to help with the 'coming out' and 'living out' process.
