It is the sincere goal of the Task Force that every LGBT senior and aging adult in San Francisco can pick up this Report and see themselves reflected here. We hope that our research and recommendations not only benefit a large number of LGBT seniors, but we also hope that our work touches the lives of those who are typically left out of the discussion: lesbians, bisexuals, transgender men and women, seniors of color and homeless seniors.

 

This report, from 2014, serves as a model for working with LGBT communities to determine needs and recommendations for serving LGBT older adults. The San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Aging Policy Task Force and this final Report are products of a community effort to raise the profile of issues affecting LGBT seniors in San Francisco. The Task Force was established at the urging of LGBT community members following a community-led process that started in the San Francisco’s Human Rights Commission’s LGBT Advisory Committee.
