Growing old can be tough but those challenges are often magnified for LGBTQ seniors. According to SAGE, the country’s largest and oldest LGBTQ+ elder advocacy organization, LGBTQ seniors have high rates of loneliness. This is due to a variety of reasons including familial separation due to their gender identity or sexuality, discrimination in retirement homes, and non-traditional support systems. This comes despite many of the freedoms LGBTQ+ people enjoying today being won by said elders. That is why LGBTQ elders say don’t forget about them this Pride. In this episode, we meet one woman who highlights how valuable LGBTQ seniors are.
