The month of May is Elder Awareness Month and here at Generation Plus we want to acknowledge our LGBTQ+ elders and thank them for their contributions to the community.
This year’s theme is ‘Age My Way’. LGBTQ+ elders contribute their time and wisdom to make our community stronger, and better connected. They are our loved ones, friends, volunteers, and neighbors.
We stand upon the shoulders of our elders who have helped bring forth so much change for the community. In these uncertain times we need to remind them that we appreciate their contributions, we still care, and we won’t go back. We value the right’s we have gained over the years due to their resilience.
We celebrate their achievements and recommit to providing our elders the support and services they need to thrive and age their way with dignity and pride.
