LGBT Senior Information Fair

By Charlotte Robinson, July 29, 2013
TODAY: The LGBT Aging Project of Boston has announced that The Cambridge Council on Aging & the Cambridge GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender) Commission are holding a LGBT Senior Information Fair Monday, July 29th from 6-7:30P at the Cambridge Senior Center, 806 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge. A number of organizations, including the LGBT Aging Project, AARP, Cambridge Human Services, Cambridge GLBT Commission & others will have representatives & information tables. This is an opportunity to socialize, receive interesting & pertinent information. Light refreshments will be served generously provided by Cadbury Commons, a residence for seniors. There will also be musical entertainment. This is a great opportunity for our LGBT community & seniors, caregivers & friends are encouraged to attend this fair. The needs of LGBT seniors are often more extreme since they are more likely to have fewer family members to support them & even in Cambridge & throughout Massachusetts they may fear prejudice & homophobia from service providers & caretakers. The LGBT Senior Fair supports the Cambridge Council on Aging's continued commitment to create a culture of respect for diversity in the aging population. This is going to be a great event for our senior LGBT community & friends. For more information, please contact Alicia Johnson at 617-349-6220 or at aliciaj@cambridgema.gov
