PFLAG in Burbank

There is a new chapter of PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) in Burbank, and its members would like to invite your attendance at their meetings.

While PFLAG was formed for the purpose of helping the parents of LGBTQ kids to understand and support their children, the group emphasizes that all are welcome to attend--parents, friends, teens, siblings.

If you are a gay or transgender teen who feels uncomfortable or awkward trying to make your parents understand what your life is like (particularly if you are in the early stages of coming out), you might want to tell your parents about this group. It helps for parents to hear about what their kids are going through from other parents who have had that experience.

This can also be a source for you, if you feel unsupported, to find adults who will watch out for you and let you know that you're not alone.

The meetings take place the second Monday of every month, at the American Lutheran Church at 755 N. Whitnall Highway, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. If you want more information, you can email them at

Burbank Public Library's teen section offers book lists for LGB and Transgender teens, with both fiction and nonfiction titles that reflect your experience. Pick one up and read something during June for LGBTQ Pride Month.
