LGBT Older Adults: A Community Conversation

Does Charlotte need or want a SAGE Chapter? The community has dozens of LGBT social and service organizations, but who is taking action on LGBT elder Basic Health Care, Caregiving Issues, Financial Insecurity, Social Isolation and Access to Aging Services? A Community Conversation for LGBT Older Adults will be held on Monday, October 23 at 7:00pm in the Tonda Taylor Community Room at Time Out Youth Center, 3800 Monroe Road in Charlotte. For purposes of the initial conversation, Older Adult is considered 55+. Shelley Hamill, Ph.D. will facilitate this first conversation. Shelley is a professor at Winthrop University, and a Master Certified Health Education Specialist. “There are many resources available in our community for older adults,” said Dan Kirsch, organizer of the Community Conversation, “but there is rarely a focus on LGBT people.” The October 23 community conversation is a free event. Questions can be directed to Kirsch via email at charlottelgbtelders@gmail.com.
