Building Inclusive Communities for LGBTQ Residents
There are currently about 1.5 million lesbian, gay and bisexual adults 65 and up and the total is expected to grow to nearly 3 million by 2030. LGBT older people face unique barriers and inequalities that can stand in the way of a healthy and rewarding later life. The additional challenges to successful aging faced by LGBT elders are gaining visibility with LGBT baby boomers, who are the first generation of LGBT people to have lived openly gay or transgender lives in large numbers. Professionals in the field of aging need to build their knowledge, skills, and cultural competencies to meet the needs of this group.
