PFLAG Greenville has been in the forefront of the battle for equality for GLBT individuals in South Carolina for 20 years. We are thankful for our heritage and for two ladies (Leslie Johnson and Carole Lender) who had the courage to start the chapter at a time when it was not popular to talk about GLBT issues. Much has been accomplished, but there is much more to do, particularly in Upstate South Carolina.
