Offering programs that address the needs and interests of LGBT older people is one concrete step that service providers can take to create welcoming, safe and LGBT-affirming spaces, where all LGBT older adults can be their authentic selves, just like their peers.

This guide, created in consultation with organizations around the U.S. that serve LGBT older adults, will walk you through the steps to launch a movie viewing and discussion centered on LGBT aging themes. This program is simple to organize, and can be an important step toward a number of goals, including welcoming LGBT older adults to your organization or agency; creating a safe space for the LGBT older adults you already serve to identify themselves and/or more fully integrate into your agency; and fostering an agency-wide culture of openness and acceptance.
