Directions to this location can be a little tricky, so we recommend using the link above and then printing out your directions. Watch the video below. This is if you are coming from North Druid Hills Rd away from Decatur and towards Buckhead. The video starts when crossing the McDonalds on N. Druid Hills. In the winter months, we usually have a lit sign that says PFLAG.
Video Driving Directions (recommended for first time visitors) – Look for the lit PFLAG sign
The entrance to the parking lot is situated on the I-85 northbound access road between N. Druid Hills Rd and Clairmont Rd. Take the access road/ramp to I-85N from North Druid Hills Rd and bear right to stay on the access road. You will pass by Guitar Center, TRANE, ASHRAE and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta on your right. You will see a sign for Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta (UUCA). During the winter months we have a flashing sign as it can be very dark. Turn right into the parking lot and proceed up the stairs to the glass doors. You will find us in rooms 209/210.
If you miss the turn into UUCA and get to Cliff Valley Way you have gone too far. Hang a right on Cliff Valley Way, a right on Briarcliff Rd and a right on N. Druid Hills Rd and come down the access road again.

Reactions to Learning Your Child Is Gay or Lesbian
In 1985, a Los Angeles Times survey found that 64% of the public said they would be “very upset” if their child told them he or she was gay or lesbian. By 2004, that number had fallen by almost half (33%). Since then, it has declined another 14 points, to 19%.
Instead, a majority (55%) now says they would not be upset if they learned their child was gay or lesbian, a 19-point increase since 2004 and a 46-point increase since the mid-1980s.
Again, this has been an across-the-board shift in attitudes. Yet the change has been more dramatic among some groups than others. In 2004, fully 82% of those 65 and older said they would be upset if their child told them they were gay, and 50% said they’d be very upset. Today, only about half (47%) say they’d be upset and just 24% say they’d be very upset.
