Pflag Surrey Advocacy

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a friendly, supportive, respectful, diverse and safe environment to our friends, families and allies in the LGBTQ2 community through education.

Our Vision

We celebrate diversity and envision a future for our community where all can live free from fear of discrimination, victimization, bullying, harassment and hatred. Pflag Surrey is committed to raising awareness and fostering understanding, advocating for the rights of all our children, family members and neighbours who are targeted for their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

We Educate

Through our website, we offer support to the LGBTQ2 community, information and links to local support networks. We also offer explanations of terminology, articles, news and books, and continue to update and distribute information pertinent to our community. There are also information and links to LGBTQ2 history in B.C. and Canada.

What We Are All About:

We are supportive parents, families, friends and allies of the LGBTQ2 community, who get together once a month.  We are the local chapter in the Fraser Valley serving, Delta, Langley, Surrey & White Rock. We offer a safe, judgement free space where you can share information and help each other to educate, share stories, issues, knowledge, and support to create a more accepting society for our new  and returning guests. We can be contacted via our phone #, our email & our web site. Plus, our monthly meetings either by Zoom or soon in person.

With the members that volunteer and participants that visit and share their journey, we have a information, experience and understanding to respond to your answers and provide the support needed. 

Surrey History

It all started with a conversation in 2016 between two Pflag Vancouver attendees. Lisa S. and Bruce M.D. who saw the growing need for a support group in Surrey. Bruce M.D., a Minister at Peninsula (Sunnyside) United Church, helped create free time and space for the group to meet regularly. Meetings started in the fall of 2016. In the summer of 2019 on June 27th, 2019,  Pflag Surrey was announced as a new chapter of Pflag Canada. A core group of 5-6 volunteers help organize and run meetings.

“These meetings continue to be an extremely important part of our own story while supporting a family member through their journey. We have found compassion, understanding and support at these meetings. We also realize not everyone receives care from family and friend, so having a safe place to share feelings and ask questions is a vital part of our process.” Parent at a meeting
