In June 1978, during Gay Pride Week in her hometown of Houston, Annella Harrison went before the City Council, declared "I am the parent of a gay child," and set about organizing a support group for other Houston parents of LGBTs.

After participating in the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in October 1979, Harrison met with a group of about one hundred other parents, including Jeanne and Morty Manford, that formed the core network of what ultimately became Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).
