The Disturbing Inequality of Being Older and LGBTI

Many older LGBTI’s remain invisible to other elderly people, while suffering ageism within their own LGBTI communities and legal and socio-economic barriers in their countries. To mark International Day of Older Persons on October 1, we look at the worrying obstacles LGBTI people may face as they age in Europe, even in countries where LGBTI rights are ensured.

We held a webinar on community organising for older LGBTI , on October 1, International Day of Older Persons.
