SAGE Story is a national digital storytelling program for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults. The purpose of the program is to strengthen the storytelling skills—and draw on the unique life experiences of—LGBT elders to diversify the public narratives on aging, long-term care and LGBT rights. SAGE Story offers skill-building workshops in New York City, maintains an online story booth for digital submissions, and partners with storytelling experts and policy-based organizations to bring these stories into public conversation. SAGE Story is led by Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE), and is made possible through the generous support of AARP Foundation and The Ford Foundation.
I have come to believe over and over again that what is most
important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even
at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood. — Audre Lorde
