Whoopi Goldberg, Dominique Jackson of Oxygen’s “Strut” & Lisa Kron, Tony Award winner for “Fun Home,” were among the celebrities & LGBTQ activists who previewed SAGE Table last night at NYC’s Chefs Club. The event was hosted by Tom Leonardis & Victor Jeffreys II, who serve as co-chairs of SAGE Table Steering Committee, NY. SAGE Table is a nationwide initiative designed to establish stronger connections across generations in our LGBT community produced by Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) & sponsored by AARP. The event happens in communities across the country on May 18th. Goldberg stated, “I am proud to be a part of SAGE Table. Don’t forget: We’re all getting older. That’s why we have to make sure we’re looking out for those who have come before us, appreciate what they have done & share those experiences with those coming after. On May 18th we will all have that conversation.” Leonardis added, “Chefs Club is the ultimate place to show off a one-of-a-kind event like SAGE Table. It’s dramatic but intimate—a great place to learn about each other over an exquisite meal.” Each gathering will bring together young & older members of our LGBTQ community & allies to break bread & build bonds. Q & A sessions at the events will bring young & older people together to share their perspectives on aging in the LGBTQ community & create stronger connections between generations. Organizers have set a goal of 10,000 participants who will meet in various venues. An estimated 3,000 have already committed.
