A New Resource for LGBT Seniors

November 3, 2010

A social service and advocacy organization for LGBT senior citizens recently launched the online National Resource Center for LGBT Aging. The one-year project by SAGE was underwritten by several foundations and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration on Aging.


Together with 10 other groups, SAGE is soliciting community feedback as it begins building the website, which will address issues including health care access, HIV and aging, and transgender elders. The site will offer publications, program directories, personal stories, interviews with prominent experts, and other items.

SAGE is asking individuals and organizations to say what they need and want in the site -- information that will be used to inform its directories and listings.

Other contributors to the center include the MAC AIDS Fund; the Gill Foundation, one of the nation's largest foundations focused on LGBT rights; and the H. van Ameringen Foundation, a personal foundation that concentrates on HIV/AIDS and other LGBT community issues. For more information, visit
