Cultural Competency: Supporting LGBT Older Adults

With the LGBTQ rights movement’s increased visibility, there has more awareness of the importance of non-profit programs being inclusivity of this population. At the same time, even LGBTQ and HIV-specific organizations often find themselves unsure of how to support older adults outside of programming geared towards those who are 50+ years old. This workshop will present an overview of the unique lived experiences of LGBTQ older adults and provide concrete tools for how organizational staff can support them- whether someone has been “out” for decades or came out later in life. If you’re aiming for your organization’s older adult programs to be more LGBTQ inclusive or are an LGBTQ or HIV/AIDS organization aiming for programs to be meaningfully intergenerational, please join us!
