Town Hall: Aging With Pride and the Future of LGBTQ Health
June 6 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Despite the adversity of their lives (or perhaps because of it) LGBTQ elders display remarkable resilience and resistance—yet many remain at high risk of health problems and socioeconomic disparity. To share insight on this phenomenon and explore ways we can support our LGBTQ elders, University of Washington’s Professor Karen Fredriksen Goldsen joins Town Hall Seattle to share important lessons learned about longevity and health from the landmark project, Aging with Pride: National Health, Aging and Sexuality/Gender Study.
Fredriksen Goldsen illuminates the ways which historical trauma and intergenerational community engagement have shaped the lives of LGBTQ elders throughout the US. Join Fredriksen Goldsen for a discussion of ways we can be responsive to and promote health for an increasingly diverse and aging society. Celebrate Pride by honoring our LGBTQ elders!
