For LGBT Seniors
We believe age is no barrier to participation in all aspects of LGBT life — social and political. But older people do have some special needs and today more and more places have social service and socializing centers for LGBT older people. Some places, such as Philadelphia, have developed dedicated housing for us.
Services & Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Elders (SAGE) has a list of national programs on their website, including a National Resource Center on LGBT Aging. Go to: http://www.sageusa.org/programs/index.cfm.
SAGENet has 26 affiliates in 19 states around the country in every region. Go to their web page here and if there is not one where you live, think about getting one going in consultation with SAGE.
