PFLAG St. Louis. Since 1973, parents have joined together in different cities to support each
other and their lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) children or family members.
The St. Louis chapter of PFLAG is one of the oldest in the country, founded in 1977 as St. Louis
FLAG. The chapter cofounders were Art and Marian Wirth and Rod and Carolyn Griffin.
