 PFLAG Tucson Chapter
[aka Parents of Lesbians and Gays]
Archives Collection

Parents of Gays and Lesbians in Tucson Arizona met in the 1990s in support of their children in local high schools who had already years before or were then forming both student and off school clubs-groups.

At differing time periods the PFLAG Tucson chapter of the national organization promoted the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons. They help through support, education, and advocacy. The group supported parents, families, straight/gay spouses, and the spectrum of LGBTQ+ with  support at the private monthly meetings at various locations around the city. It provided those who attended no matter where they were in their lives with an opportunity for sharing their and their childrens personal experiences and problems safely while feeling supported.

The local chapter assisted in the education process both for individuals and community wide with respect, acknowledgement, and fostering LGBTQ relationships of their children as something to be proud of, that was healthy and like other relationships in the straight community.

The PFLAG Tucson education activities often featured a yearly fundraising effort with both its own and others sponsored scholarships for LGBTQ+ local students seeking a college, trade school, or university education and included numerous guest speakers at middle school, high school, college, university, and local business or organizations.
