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.
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 the John Sherman Cooper Community Arts Center (107 N. Main Street, Somerset, KY 42501). Our featured speaker for this month is Bob Boon, with Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy. He will be doing a training on suicide prevention (QPR: Question, Persuade, Refer).
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.

Come join us for Gaymer Night on June 30, 2023 at 6 PM! Spots are $5 per person/per table. You may bring food so long as it isn't too messy. No vaping in the shop, please. Available games include D&D, Call of Cthulhu for rpgs (role playing games). There is also potential for a murder mystery (Sherlock Holmes or Sheriff of Nottingham type). Please be advised there is only one DM right now. You may bring dice or purchase some at the shop. Typically, they use pregenerated characters. We recommend you bring pencils and scratch paper, though we will have some on hand. There are two tables for role playing, and there will be some D&D 5th edition books available if anyone would like to try to run a game.
