LGBT Aging Special Report

The Journal of Gerontological Social Work has released a triple issue entitled “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Aging: The Role of Gerontological Social Work”, that’s available for a free download all of September 2014. The issue includes 18 articles & focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender older adults & aging, an often unaddressed sector of our community. The introduction to the special issues asks readers to “review each of the articles in this special issue in an effort to grasp the potential for the profession of social work to provide leadership with the LGBT aging population in all of these arenas, as well as in program development.” The vast areas of research in this issue cast light on the broad diversity in the aging LGBT population. Areas of concern include: human rights & policy; issues related to ageism, heterosexism, & gender identity; relations with families & relationships; social support networks; issues related to racial & multicultural identity; & health & mental health disparities. Guest Editor Noell L. Rowan states, “This work is the first of its kind in a social work academic journal & the release of these articles is timely given the current political & social climate in America.” This is important & enlightening information for our entire LGBT community.

I would love to help anyway I can. I watched Gen Silent and was very touched. I see a big need in Louisville Ky and southern Indiana.
