There still exists oppression against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (GLBT) persons. Local help is available through the Central Coast chapter of PFLAG (parents, family, and friends of lesbians and gays). We have been helping locally for 19 years. Our mission is three-fold. We support not only GLBT persons, but those who might be struggling with the issue of their son, daughter, relative or friend being GLBT.
We also educate those in need of understanding GLBT issues. We have many booklets and other materials. They are available at our SLO farmers’ market booth (restarting in March) or by contacting us directly.
Lastly, we advocate for GLBT persons not only by supporting political issues that involve their human rights but by supporting them personally to uphold their legal rights. Anyone who needs help or would like to join us in our efforts for equality should contact Central Coast PFLAG at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 801-2186 between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
