SAGE Welcomes Two Members to its Board of Directors

SAGE makes two new appointments, including former Board Chair Frank Stark, and continues its commitment to advocating for LGBT elders nationally.

[NEW YORK, NY] SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) has welcomed Frank Stark and Laurie Peter to its national Board of Directors. SAGE is the country’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults.  Both Board Members are accomplished leaders in their respective fields, offering insight and guidance to SAGE.

“We’re honored that Frank and Laurie will be working to help SAGE ensure that LGBT older people lead the lives of dignity that they’ve earned,” said Michael Adams, Executive Director of SAGE. “With so much planned by SAGE in the coming months, including our central role in the White House Conference on Aging, it’s hard to imagine a better time to be welcoming extraordinary leaders like Frank and Laurie to SAGE’s board.”

This will be Frank Stark’s third term on SAGE’s Board. Previously, he served from 2000 to 2004, and again from 2007 to 2013. He served as Board Co-Chair from 2009 to 2011. Frank remarked, "As proud as I am of the progress that SAGE has made in helping to improve the lives of GLBT older adults, the vision for the next few years is even more exciting."

Laurie Peter remarked, “I am honored to serve on the board of SAGE. LGBTQ elders role-modeled activism, civil rights for all and stood firm in the face of oppression for decades. It is my wish that the SAGE community continue to relieve our elders of isolation, give voice to their experiences, bring joy and assist with case management for their health and wellbeing."
