LGBT seniors and issues they face, including possible discrimination in long-term-care facilities.

This month, IN THE LIFE explores what it means to grow old as a gay person in America - how a generation once at the frontlines of establishing the modern LGBT movement finds, in what should be their golden years, new challenges living life openly gay. IT'S ABOUT TIME highlights the leaders spearheading a national effort to protect the rights of LGBT senior citizens and care for our elders.

In the Life "It's About Time" airs Sunday, May 16 at 11:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT 21.1/cable1011 and 11).

Also: AARP president Jennie Chin Hansen and SAGE executive director Michael Adams on the needs of LGBT seniors.
