"While we have spent the past four decades raising the LGBT question, and arguing for our basic humanity, the next four will entail shaping and enforcing policies that best serve the great breadth of needs in our community."

An update to the groundbreaking Outing Age report issued in 2000, Outing Age 2010: Public Policy Issues Affecting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Elders presents an in-depth look at public policy issues and the challenges facing the millions of LGBT older adults in the country. This thorough and detailed report covers: Discrimination and Access to Services, Financial and Family Security, Health and Health Care, Caregiving, Housing, and Civic Engagement. The report also details how several federal programs that aim to serve elders exclude or otherwise discriminate against LGBT elders, and offers solid policy recommendations to remedy the uneven and unequal treatment this growing population faces.
