FREE Listening Session – Older Adults from Maine's LGBTQ+ Community
March 30, 2022 4:00-5:00 pm

Maine Council on Aging's Equity & Healthy Aging Initiative sponsors a ZOOM Listening Session with older adult members of Maine's LGBTQ+ Community.

Many people who led the movement toward greater acceptance of members of the LGBTQ+ community face difficult decisions as they age even to the point of considering going back in the closet to escape discrimination. Even though Maine has not enacted ‘don't say gay' laws at this point, bias against LGBTQ+ community members, especially older adults, is still present here in Maine.

Come hear from LGBTQ+ older adults about the challenges they face in navigating the issues of aging, share resources, and explore how service providers and community members can better understand and support LGBTQ+ older adults.
