PFLAG San Francisco, the San Francisco Chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, Inc., has been meeting consistently since 1976. Attendees include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning persons as well as parents, allies and friends.
The volunteer members inspire all the regular activities and special projects of the chapter and are central to chapter leadership. The chapter works cooperatively with the other chapters in the Bay Area and Northern California. We regularly participate in PFLAG national conventions and in other national activities.
We invite you to share your experience and concerns in a completely confidential and supportive environment. We encourage lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people, parents, family and friends to attend our meetings. Everyone is welcome.
This year’s iconic San Francisco Pride celebration will take place June 27-28 at the Civic Center. The grand parade is on Sunday, June 28, starting at 10:30 a.m. Come join our contingent and march in the parade or come by our booth in the celebration area to say hello.Line up time and assembly location for the parade will be announced on our website (www.pflagsf.org) and on our Facebook Page (PFLAG San Francisco).

Sam and Julia Thoron to be Community Grand Marshals!
We are especially proud and excited that our own Sam and Julia Thoron will be at the head of our parade contingent as Grand Marshals and recipients of José Julio Sarria History Maker Award.
Parade Volunteers Needed!
As usual PFLAG San Francisco will celebrate along with over 2 million people at San Francisco Pride. The highlight of the celebration will be the iconic parade up Market Street. But to make it all happen we need the help of volunteers who can act as Contingent Monitors.
Contingent Monitors are designated members of our contingent who act as chaperones as we make our way along the Parade route. Their job is to make sure we stay together and stay safe.
To be a monitor you must attend a mandatory training session, which will be given at various times and locations (including some South Bay and North Bay locations.)
If you would like to help out please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Everyone who believes in the PFLAG principles of family, equality, and advocacy is welcomed to join our contingent in the parade. Bring friends as well as family. We are a family friendly contingent so feel free to bring children.
While we welcome everyone, we ask our contingent members to keep the following guidelines in mind.

Cable Car: For a suggested donation of $20, there will be a cable car available for those who wish to ride the parade route. No one will be turned away for lack of a donation.
Flair: We will have PFLAG sashes and buttons available for a donation if you decide to add more flair to your outfit for the day.
