SAGE Releases Comprehensive Research Report on Aging Concerns among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Older People, Ages 45-75

New national study shows high concerns about retirement and healthcare providers among LGBT older people, as well as smaller support networks over time.

[New York, NY] Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender older people report high concerns about aging and retirement, a lack of disclosure to their healthcare providers and smaller support networks, but are also more likely to see themselves as mentors, according to a new report released today by SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders).

The report, Out and Visible: The Experiences and Attitudes of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Older Adults, Ages, 45-75, details findings from a uniquely comprehensive, nationally representative quantitative study on aging among older LGBT people.

The report is based on a national survey of 1,857 LGBT people and 519 non-LGBT people, conducted in March 2014 by Harris Poll on behalf of SAGE.

“SAGE is proud to continue leading the aging and LGBT rights field in better understanding and supporting the realities of a growing population of LGBT older people in this country,” said Michael Adams, executive director at SAGE, a national nonprofit dedicated to supporting LGBT older people. “This study should compel healthcare and aging providers, as well as leaders in the public and private sectors, to create services, policies, products and institutions that are responsive to a growing, underserved demographic.”
