SAGE has landed in Houston! This year's Creating Change in the Lone Star State is proving a welcome change in weather for SAGE staffers from New York, Chicago and D.C. and ready to present on a variety of topics. For a full listing, including descriptions, download our schedule.
One of our major events will be presenting our Advocacy Award for Excellence in Leadership on Aging Issues to Stu Maddux, the award winning producer and director of independent documentaries about LGBTQ and LGBTQ history, including the remarkable and massively influential Gen Silent—which chronicles the lives of six LGBT elders as they navigate aging, caregiving, terminal illness, and loss.
Another highlight is the SAGE National Resource Center on LGBT Aging offering it's premier training on LGBT aging and cultural competency to Creating Change attendees. SAGE will also be conducting workshops on paid leave, the Affordable Care Act, advocacy work and more.
Of course, SAGE (and most of Creating Change goers) loves to participate in the "LGBT Elders 50+ and Allies Dance." Co-sponsored by The Task Force, this dance is a great chance for young and older to mingle, dance and party the night away! DJ Houston Sun will be spinning Saturday night from 9PM to midnight and we can't wait to see you there! Follow us on Twitter for updates throughout the conference and if you're there, use #lgbtaging as a hashtag to connect with us.
