The first meeting of “Parents and Friends of Gays” is held.  The organization eventually goes national as Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).  PFLAG has 400 chapters and 200,000 supporters crossing multiple generations of American families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
