Educational Resources

We have a large number of resources available from Metro DC PFLAG and the national PFLAG office for you.

Reading List

An important piece of the mission of Metro DC PFLAG is education. To that end, we have created a list of books that serve as helpful guides on the road to becoming well-informed about LGBTQ issues. Many of the books are geared toward helping families with LGBTQ members understand one another more fully. This list contains readings for all ages, races, religions, and relationships. As a vast amount of work has been penned and published on sexual orientation and gender identity, we have attempted to recommend the books that are most applicable to today’s society, including works on religion, politics, and history.
