PFLAG Bowie Opens its Doors
A new PFLAG chapter has started in Bowie, Maryland. This chapter will service the entire Prince George’s County area.

BOWIE, MD (September 27th, 2023)—A new chapter of PFLAG, a LGBTQ+ non-profit support organization, is opening its doors to the Prince George’s County community this month to support members of the LGBTQ+ community and their families. PFLAG Bowie’s mission extends into our local community, serving as a vital resource for individuals seeking guidance, support, and connection. Our organization is open to everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or family status. We believe that diversity is our strength, and we are committed to building bridges between allies, families, friends, and LGBTQ+ individuals. Our first in-person meeting will be on Thursday, September 28 at 7:30pm, and will aim to foster a more inclusive and accepting community. Please email to receive meeting details:

PFLAG Bowie offers a wide range of services, including support groups, educational resources, and community events. We provide a safe and empathetic space for parents, families, and friends to share their experiences and concerns while fostering a deeper understanding of LGBTQ+ issues. Through our outreach and advocacy efforts, we aim to raise awareness, challenge stereotypes, and create a more inclusive community where everyone is respected and embraced for who they are.

We invite the Bowie community, as well as the greater Prince George’s County community, to join us in our mission to celebrate diversity, promote acceptance, and empower LGBTQ+ individuals and their families. Together, we can build a brighter, more inclusive future for our neighborhoods.
