That's So New York: SAGE Senior Center
Many in the elder LGBT community face discrimination and social isolation, feeling shunned by others their age. SAGE, Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders has opened a community center and safe haven, where they can receive peer support from other LGBT seniors. SAGE is one of eight centers that are part of the Department for the Aging’s “Innovative Senior Center” partnership, offering a holistic approach to a diverse group of elder communities.
