Out and Visible: The Experiences and Attitudes of LGBT Older Adults
By: Diverse Elders

Out and Visible: The Experiences and Attitudes of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Older Adults, Ages 45-75 examines the values, needs, wants and lifestyle preferences of LGBT older people. This study explores the aging realities of LGBT people, as well as their fears, beliefs, behaviors and aspirations in areas such as healthcare, finance and retirement, support systems, housing and sources of information. SAGE also recognizes that this country has grown increasingly diverse in its racial and ethnic composition, and that women and transgender people (as two examples) often require unique supports. Thus, this study takes a closer look at the extent to which African Americans, Hispanics, women and transgender people have unique considerations within a diverse LGBT market.
