"Congress can begin rectifying this problem through OAA reauthorization, which has modernized the OAA so that it remains responsive to ever-changing demographics, such as the increase in communities of color. First, the OAA should specify LGBT older adults as a vulnerable population with the greatest economic and social need."

Robert Espinoza, Senior Director of Public Policy and Communications at SAGE, discusses the importance of including LGBT older adults in the Older Americans Act in this article published in Aging Today, the bimonthly newspaper of the American Society on Aging.
