We can’t talk about aging and HIV (and other sexually transmitted infections) without talking about sex! There is a general discomfort with sexual issues in the U.S. across the lifecycle; and, talking with older adults can be even more taboo. However, we know that LGBT older adults have the right to express their sexuality, regardless of age, and/or sexual orientation and gender identity.

This fact sheet will provide the reader with basic information about the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STI), including HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus).

LGBT National Senior Hotline

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) National Senior Hotline provides telephone peer-support, as well as factual information and local resources for our senior community. No matter where they live, LGBT seniors have a place to call when they need peer-support, information and local resources. Many times our callers are very isolated, some in the closet or and in need of a caring, non-judgmental person to talk with. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) National Senior Hotline provides seniors the ability to talk with our trained peer-support volunteers about issues including isolation, relationship concerns, bullying, family concerns, HIV/AIDS and much more. We also provide local senior resource information for cities and towns across the United States. All services are free and confidential. Call the hotline at 1-888-234-7243. The hotline is open Monday through Friday from 4pm - midnight, Eastern Time and on Saturday from noon to 5PM Eastern Time. Prefer to use email? Reach out at Help@LGBThotline.org. MORE >
