Creating Change around LGBT Aging Issues
Next week from January 23 – 27 marks the 25th annual National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change. Held at the Hilton Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia, and organized by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Creating Change will welcome over 3,500 people from all walks of life and from across the country to network and strategize on new ways to move the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movement forward.
Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) will once again host the LGBT Elder Day-Long Institute, and other trainings throughout the 5-day conference, to open dialogue and tackle issues faced by LGBT elders.
