LGBTQ+ ELDERS DAY

HONOR OUR LGBT ELDERS DAY

Honor Our LGBT Elders Day is observed annually on May 16.

The rights and acceptance that LGBTQ individuals have today did not occur in a vacuum or happen by accident.  Our LGBT elders worked hard to gain rights and social acceptance.

Honor Our LGBT Elders Day is an opportunity for community centers, faith organizations, educational institutions and aging service providers to recognize the lives of LGBT older adults and honor their contributions to history.

HOW TO OBSERVE
