"The #1 goal and intention of Ogden PFLAG is to help families who are struggling with a family member coming out and to be a support to our LGBT friends and family. I hope that we will be able to seek out those individuals who need our help! I want to really stay focused on what our chapter is about, and that is love and acceptance."
