If LGBT elders are not included in the planning process, if they are not represented in promotional materials, if they are not proudly marching and riding on floats, this lack of inclusion and visibility sends the message that they are not welcome. How do we assure that the pioneers who laid the groundwork for today’s celebrations are welcomed and celebrated? We identify and implement age-friendly practices, systematically eliminating barriers and working to increase the visibility and participation of our LGBT elders.

The goals of Welcome to Pride are: to learn about effective age-friendly features that Pride organizers and elder advocates currently have in place; to share these best practices; and to secure commitments from Pride organizers to maintain or increase the number of age-friendly features of their events.
