First Ever Gay Senior Advocacy Confab In NYC

NEW YORK - Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Elders (SAGE) will hold its first-ever conference created by and for LGBT older adults from November 11 to 13, 2010 in New York City. Based in the belief that LGBT elders are the experts on their lives, “The Future of Aging Is in Our Hands” will bring together hundreds of older adults from around the country to explore topics such as reforming public policies to address the inequities that harm LGBT older adults; tackling ageism within and outside the LGBT community; the unique challenges of caregiving for the loved ones of LGBT elders; overcoming the mental and physical challenges of aging; and achieving financial and legal security when discrimination is rampant among LGBT older adults and their loved ones. Attendees will walk away from the conference with the tools and information they need to advocate on their own behalf and begin reshaping the future of aging for all older adults. 

Conference highlights include an opportunity for LGBT older adults to learn more about and make policy recommendations on the 2011 reauthorization of the Older Americans Act; clinics staffed by professionals who will advise LGBT elders on legal, financial, and housing issues; and a special screening of the award-winning documentary Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement.
