Loving, caring activists
The small group of advocates who started SAGE in 1978 couldn’t have imagined the number of lives it would touch.
Today, SAGE advocates with and on behalf of LGBTQ+ elders nationwide. We operate five bustling, activity-filled SAGE Centers in New York City, and our affiliate network programs events and services throughout the U.S. that are specifically geared toward the older LGBTQ+ community. We’ve built affordable LGBTQ-welcoming housing in NYC, and we’ve trained over 100,000 care providers across the U.S. on how to best meet the needs of the nation’s large and growing LGBTQ+ elder population.
And we are now a somewhat larger group of passionate, dedicated employees in locations across the country.
