Opening the Closet on Aging: working with older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and transgender people (English)

Opening the closet on aging: working with older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and transgender people (French)

Long overlooked and invisible in society at large, older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and transgender (LGBT) people are beginning to emerge as a distinct community. While LGBT seniors share many of the same aging-related issues as their heterosexual counterparts, they also confront special challenges as well. LGBT seniors may face social discrimination due to their age as well as their sexual orientation or gender identity. Older LGBT people often experience homophobia or transphobia when trying to access health care or elder care services, and they also frequently confront age discrimination within LGBT community organizations.

This educational brochure provides some information on the needs and issues of older LGBT people for use as a training resource and a stand alone educational tool in training providers of mainstream  services to seniors.

Brochures are sold in packages of 25.

Opening the closet on aging is available in English and French.
