Improving the Lives of LGBT Older Adults - Abbreviated Version

The Movement Advancement Project and SAGE

April 1, 2010


Although largely invisible until recently, LGBT older adults make up a significant (and growing) shart of both the overall LGBT population and the larger 65+ population. While confronted with the same challenges that face all people as they age, LGBT elders also face an array of unique barriers and inequalities that can stand in the way of a healthy and rewarding later life. This snapshot report, a summary of Improving the Lives of LGBT Older Adults, examines these additional challenges and how they make it harder for LGBT elders to achieve three key elements of successful aging: financial security, good health and health care, and social support and community engagement. The report also offers detailed recommendations for improving the lives, and life chances, of LGBT older Americans.
