SAGE Albuquerque is the primary provider of support, social and educational programs to enhance the lives of all older gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) individuals in the city of Albuquerque. Working with local government agencies, key providers and other LGBTQ organizations, we attempt to inform and educate both the general public and the LGBTQ community about relevant LGBTQ elders issues and obtains their support for elder LGBTQ individuals.

SAGE Albuquerque has recently become a major program of the Common Bond New Mexico Foundation mission and is directly managed by an Advisory Committee comprised of seniors who are key leaders within the LGBTQ community and major providers. This committee reports directly to the Common Bond Board of Directors. (Two of the Committee members are also Board members.) Since Common Bond does not have a permanent physical location and there is no LGBTQ Community Center in Albuquerque, we utilize other venues, both public and private, to complete our programs. We accomplish this by forming coalitions and partnerships with other groups and businesses which benefits everyone involved. 

Recent Highlights

  • Booth at the Health and Enrichment Fair as part of the annual New Mexico Aging Conference.
  • Incorporation into the Common Bond New Mexico Foundation mission.
  • Establishment of a Bereavement support group.
  • New and expanding list of social opportunities for LGBTQ Seniors.
