LGBT Older People Built the LGBT Community
By: Diverse Elders

Whether they protested in the streets, founded organizations, or just managed to survive times of social unrest, LGBT older people laid the groundwork for the progress all LGBT people now enjoy. Many, however, are not reaping the benefits because they have become isolated. This can create the risk of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. It’s time we fix those problems.
