Lee’s decades of experience in health care & Grant’s inspired work as an educator & novelist will contribute immensely to the rich & varied perspectives that are such a source of strength for SAGE & our Board of Directors.” Grant Ginder added, “I’m excited to join such a dedicated group of community-minded people. Storytelling is a powerful tool for change, & SAGE honors & shares the stories of our LGBTQ+ elders every day.” Lee Coccaro-Sider concluded, “It’s an honor to be a part of the good work of SAGE.

It’s a joy that I can continue to advocate for them in this next stage of life.” Founded in 1978 SAGE is the world’s largest & oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQ older people.
