Join us as we welcome Dr. Jane Fleishman (she/her) for The Stonewall Generation: LGBTQ Elders on Sex, Activism, & Aging on Wednesday, November 10th at 7:00 PM EST over Zoom!
This workshop will be recorded and will be made available for a limited time to everyone who registers.
When we talk about sexuality and aging, LGBTQ elders have additional concerns regarding their gender and sexual minority status. For many of these elders, arriving at a senior living community can evoke fears and concerns about “coming out” that they hadn’t dealt with in years. This program will offer the historical context and the voices of LGBTQ elders expressing their fears, hopes, and desires in a unique environment of inclusion.
During this workshop, participants will discuss health disparities for LGBTQ elders, define discrimination against LGBTQ elders, and learn how to apply one (1) aspect of this program to create a more inclusive clinical or educational practice.
