Support

Dealing with issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, whether in relation to yourself or a loved one, can be very isolating. The need to discuss how you’re feeling, to ask questions, and to receive support may be very pressing. But who to trust?

PFLAG members are a diverse group but share one common trait – they are here to support you.

We have regular, local support meetings every 4th Thursday at 7 pm at the Aiken UU Church, 115 Gregg Avenue, Aiken, SC. 29801.

If you cannot wait until our next meeting for support, consider contacting the Aiken Helpline (211 locally or 877-648-9900 toll free) for 24/7 immediate crisis intervention, resources and local referrals.  If you are under 18 another great resource is The Trevor Project which also runs a 24/7 hotline (866-488-7386 toll free).

You may also contact us at pflagaiken@gmail.com or www.facebook.com/pflagaiken anytime but please be aware that volunteers monitor both and may not get back to you immediately.

Finally, peruse our member-submitted resources, below, for additional information.
