  • Tom Berger, MD, Vietnam Veterans of America

    Everyone deserves a right to live in an environment free from harassment and discrimination. With over 5 million LGBTQ adults set to reach the age of 65 by 2030, it is imperative that we provide safe, inclusive spaces to ensure their successful transition into their golden years.

  • Kimberly Krauter, COO of Advanced Living Communities

    After working decades in the senior living industry, I have witnessed LGBT people going back into the closet. Often no one would know who they really were until after they passed. How frustrating it must be to be afraid to tell people who you really are.

  • John J. Bauters, Mayor of Emeryville, CA

    Culturally competent housing for seniors is one of the keys to a long and healthy life. In our city, we value LGBT seniors and look for opportunities to create a place where they can belong.
