Welcome to PFLAG Canada Sault Ste. Marie

If your child just came out of the closet and you’re not sure how you feel, you can talk to PFLAG!

PFLAG-SSM-Welcome door

It doesn’t matter who you love, as long as you are happy and safe.
Life is too short to be judgmental.

It’s completely normal.
My mother told me she loved me, and nothing would change that.
My only regret in life is that I wish I had come out of the closet sooner.
They love and support me no matter what.

This website is dedicated to the memory of Sault native and gay activist Raymond Taavel, and to all other Sault and Algoma residents who fought and continue to fight for equal rights for LGBTQ people.


The concept, content, and original graphics for this website were a joint effort by many PFLAG Canada Sault Ste. Marie chapter members. But the credit for making the website a reality belongs to Saultite Mark Primavera, who donated his time and talents to achieving a site that we are proud to present, and to Stacey Vetzal, member of the Kingston Chapter of PFLAG Canada, for her guidance, sharing of her great knowledge of website development, and unending support. We thank you both, and all members, very much for your thoughtful contributions!
