PFLAG Somerset is the Somerset, Kentucky chapter of PFLAG. We provide resources, support, education, and advocacy for the LGBTQ+ population of the Lake Cumberland region and their allies. You do not need to be a parent to join our ranks. You just need to be a friend.
The date is approaching fast. Don't miss out!
PFLAG Somerset hosts support meetings on the fourth Thursday of each month from 5:30pm to 7:00pm EST at the Pulaski County Public Library (304 S Main Street, Somerset, KY 42501). Due to a scheduling conflict for June, location for this meeting is TBD.
Next Support Meeting: June 22, 2023 @ 5:30PM EST
Support meetings are confidential and all are welcome – LGBTQ+ youth and adults, family members, friends, allies, and those who wish to learn more about LGBTQ+ issues. You do not have to be a member to attend, though we will have membership and volunteer sign-ups available at the meeting. Should you wish to become a member, a generous sponsor has committed to covering the fees associated with National membership for our first 100 members, so it's only $10 for household membership, and you get a t-shirt!
Moderators reserve the right to remove anyone who is disruptive.
PFLAG Somerset is hosting a Pride Picnic in the Park June 3, 2023 from 11 am - 3 pm at Citizens Park in Somerset, Kentucky. This will be an intimate, laid-back, and low-key event without vendors or performers. Come as you are. More information on food particulars will be forthcoming. You may or may not know, but some of our board members like to bake. We welcome you to bring any fun activities you'd like to share with others! We are sorting out what we have amongst ourselves. Rest assured we will have some fun things for kiddos. Please bring your camping chairs, sunblock, and all the good vibes! If you are bringing your sweet doggo, please remember that they must remain leashed and picked up after.
Directions from HWY 80:
Turn onto HWY 1247 N (towards the new Pulaski Co. Board of Education. Turn left onto Elliott Dr./Loveless Ln. (different maps show either road as it has been renamed). Turn left onto Hillcrest Ave. (then into the parking lot). If you reach the Board of Education building or the 4-way-stop of University Dr., you've gone too far. Reach out to us--over Facebook is probably easiest but we do have email on our phones, too!
