Pflag Halton is a volunteer-run organization that serves the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and their friends, family, and loved ones in Halton. Established in 2019, our local chapter is committed to building safer spaces for queer and trans folks across Halton region.

Ongoing programs:

Two distinct peer support groups available to parents and caregivers of 2SLGBTQIA+ kids
