As the world unites to fight for social justice for our marginalized communities, let’s ensure we are also fighting for older adults. Starting with a framework about what ageism is, this workshop will feature a diverse panel of speakers who will share their expertise and experiences as older adults in the LGBTQ community. Participants will be able to hear and participate in dialogue about what is unique about the stigma and bias about growing older as queer and gender-expansive people. Our love, sex, physical, and mental health needs are different, especially as we age. Please join us for an important conversation that is long overdue. We will all leave with a better understanding of how ageism impacts the LGBTQ community and with resources of where to go for continued education and learning.
Panelists will include three community members and Old School.info's Kyrie Carpenter and Ryan Backer!
