Blind Friends of Lesbian, Gay, Transgender and Bisexual People (BFLAG)
BFLAG, Blind Friends of Lesbian, Gay, Transgender and Bisexual People is a chartered affiliate of The American Council of the Blind. BFLAG is the only national organization dedicated to serving the special needs of individuals who are both visually impaired and part of the GLBT community.
Education and information remain cornerstones of BFLAG's mission of improving the quality of life of those who are blind and lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Collaborating with PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), BFLAG has transferred a growing volume of literature into accessible formatted materials from which the visually impaired can benefit.
BFLAG also advocates for this segment of the community by ensuring adequate services are made available by agencies and institutions serving the blind and by providing a forum for views and concerns of this often overlooked segment of the GLBT community.
