LGBTQ elders that are

You can make a difference in the lives of elders as they
age with pride
Your support will sustain us, especially in this current political climate when vital programs, services, and rights for the LGBTQ community are threatened. AARP recently
released a report with statistics that are alarming.
The AARP survey notes that Black and Latino LGBT adults report the greatest concerns about future family support, social supports, and discrimination.
The survey also found that half (52%) of LGBT adults said they fear discrimination in health care as they age.
At GRIOT we know these challenges to be true as we work daily with LGBTQ elders of color.
GRIOT addresses this need by offering
Leadership Development, Advocacy, Volunteer Opportunities,
Case Management and Nutritional programs to LGBTQ elders of color.
"I have learned to become an advocate at GRIOT Circle through my visibility. By co-hosting socials for transgender older adults at GRIOT, I have learned how to advocate for and affirm the identities of my community"- Renata
