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 >
