If You Are An LGBT Older Adult Who Feels Isolated This Holiday Season, You’re Not Alone! (Spanish)
By: Diverse Elders

For many older adults, the holidays can be a difficult time. However, this season can be particularly difficult for LGBT older adults. The lack of social and legal acceptance, both historically and currently, of LGBT people has had a profound impact on LGBT older adults. LGBT older adults are less likely to be married or partnered, and are twice as likely to live alone, leaving them particularly vulnerable to social isolation.

The infographic is designed to help isolated or lonely LGBT older adults in their communities know that they are not alone—and to give them options of where to go for help. Local organizations can customize these infographics with their contact information.

This infographic is available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Chinese, and Tagalog.
