"To live lives of integrity and honesty, today's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender elders endured – and continue to endure – discrimination, harassment, and violence."

This publication is designed to inform LGBT older adults of various available services and benefits, including LGBT-friendly housing and service providers and benefits for people with disabilities. It also overviews California's anti-discrimination laws and how to address discrimination or mistreatment. While this publication aims to help LGBT older adults understand how relationship recognition laws affect benefits, it does not give legal advice. Instead, it includes a large resource directory of various services that may be of use to LGBT elders. (Please note this publication is intended for those living in California).
