February, 1994
The Halifax Group started by a small group of gay and lesbian individuals, however after a year, this group stepped back and let the mom's and dad's run it. The goal was to support and educate parents, family members and friends who had g/l/b/t loved ones in their lives.

RonGarnettDoucette writes: At our last meeting/social this Sunday [December 7, 2008], it was decided that the Halifax PFLAG group dissolve. This comes mostly from a dwindling membership over the past number of years and a lot of the mom’s and dad’s who were involved, were no longer in need of support. I’ll miss the monthly meetings but have to agree with their decision. The 15 years I’ve been involved, I’ve met some wonderful people.
"Support, education and resources. Meetings were held in individual homes."
