Aging Matters: Aging with Pride

Aging Matters: Aging with Pride

Fri, 06/16/2023 - 8:30pm - 9:00pm

LGBTQIA+ older adults face unique social, economic and health challenges. Organizations and individuals are working to address loneliness and access to competent, affirming healthcare and assisted living communities.

We shine a light on what many in the Stonewall Generation have had to endure and fight for in the hopes of effecting positive community change in the ongoing pursuit of equality. Aging Matters: Aging with Pride airs Friday, June 16 at 8:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

This presentation of Aging Matters is part of Aging Together in New York," an initiative hosted by WXXI and NYS public broadcasters designed to draw attention to the value of older adults in our communities and provide resources to help seniors build resilience and combat social isolation. Public broadcasters across the state will reach older adults on broadcast television and radio, online, and at in-person events with new documentaries, short films, and other engaging content.
