How to Be an Ally to Transgender Older Adults
July 2021 | FORGE and National Resource Center on LGBT Aging
“Most people, trans or not, will ask for advice if they want it. More often, we simply want someone to share with or “witness” what is happening in our lives. Most of us can also use a friend who is positive and hopeful, who reassures us that we can handle the things we are facing. ”
Have you ever wondered how you can better support older Transgender people in your community? The National Resource Center on LGBT Aging and FORGE are thrilled to share the new toolkit How to Be an Ally to Transgender Older Adults. This toolkit provides education, resources, and practical tips for being an Ally. We encourage you to share this toolkit with others interested in being an Ally in support of older Transgender family, friends and community members.
The toolkit is available online and for download in English and Spanish.
