Come celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Boston-based LGBT Aging Project as we honor David Wilson with the LGBT Aging Project’s OUTstanding Hero Award on Wednesday November 16th from 6-8 pm at the Microsoft New England Research & Development Center 1 Memorial Drive in Cambridge. The Boston-based LGBT Aging Project has been committed to ensuring that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender older adults and caregivers have equal access to the life-prolonging benefits, protections, services and institutions that their heterosexual neighbors take for granted. Our work has made it possible for LGBT older adults to step out from the shadows and the silence to reclaim their voice and rightful place in the community. We will mark our 10th anniversary by celebrating our progress as well as the many who have stood with us to make revolutionary change in raising awareness of the issues faced by LGBT older adults. Our first decade produced many successes from changing policy to providing concrete services such as community meal sites, cultural competency training for mainstream caregivers, and social events for LGBT older adults and their friends.

Lisa Krinsky, Director of the LGBT Aging Project
