Silver City, NM, March 31, 2020—Because of the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing, the April 7 meeting of PFLAG Silver City has been cancelled.  Monthly meetings will resume when this health crisis is over.

PFLAG Silver City cannot offer financial support; however, we can offer information for families and others when a loved one comes out.  Whether you connect with a local chapter in person, online, or by phone, you can meet people from your community who have been where you are, or are right there with you now.

Family support and acceptance is critical to the health and wellbeing of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer, and PFLAG has been at the forefront of this work for over four decades. For more information call PFLAG Silver City at 575-590-8797, visit our website pflagsilver.org or go to the PFLAG National website pflag.org
