The Oklahoma City Chapter of Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons, their families and friends through:

  • Support to cope with an adverse society
  • Education to enlighten an ill-informed public
  • Advocacy to end discrimination and secure equal civil rights.

PFLAG Oklahoma City provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity. Keeping families together is the mission of PFLAG. Our family values stress education, understanding, acceptance, and support, but most of all love, thereby empowering our children — straight and gay — to lead happy and productive lives.

This is a story of how two OKCYU teens met and started dating. Young love is such a sweet time in everyone’s life. LGBT teens shouldn’t have to be scared to make the first step to ask someone out (well they shouldn’t have to be any more nervous than any other teen doing the same thing). I hope this story gives an lgbt teen the courage make a move and to talk to their crush.

“My boyfriend and I met at a skating rink in OKC. We started talking and finally got together in February of 2012. Although, at the time we decided to keep it a secret. He and I were petrified. We didn’t know whether we could trust anyone to accept us or not. After about a year we started to tell close friends and family. After we came out New Year’s Eve right before 2014 things started to go downhill. Some of my family members were upset and didn’t understand our lifestyle. They couldn’t see our love for the pure love that it was. They thought my boyfriend “made me this way” and that he was pressuring me to be with him. Truth be told, I’m the one who asked him out in the first place. Overall people have calmed down and we have received a lot of support from family and friends. I wanted to ask him to the school prom in a special way. One day I took his little sister to get a poster board and glitter glue and made a sign. I told him to come outside (his sister was video recording it the whole time). When he came outside the porch light turned on and revealed me with the sign asking him to prom. What was hilarious was that when we made the sign, we forgot to put the letter “R” in PROM. It was hilarious. By the way, he said yes and we went to POM together. :)”
