Support Groups Beginning in Staunton

PFLAG Blue Ridge is happy to announce that beginning in January, we will offer an LGBTQ Support Group in Staunton in addition to our monthly Charlottesville meetings!

This is a free monthly support group for anyone who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, as well as their family, friends or allies. Education, information and sharing are offered to help those who are struggling, or who have family members struggling, with their understanding of Gender and/or Sexual Orientation.

The group helps to create a space where LGBTQ kids and adults can feel safe, and affirmed to support their making healthy decisions in life, and where family and friends can learn the best ways to offer their support and lead with love.


The group will meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm beginning January 9th, 2013. There will be no group meetings if Staunton schools or government offices are closed due to inclement weather or other emergency.

Future dates: February 13th, March 13th, April 10th, May 8th, June 12th, July 10th, September 11th, October 9th, November 13th and December 11th. There is no monthly meeting in August.
