About SAGE Utah

SAGE Utah focuses on meeting the following needs and quality of life for LGBTQ adults as they age.

  • Emotional Needs (relationships, love, care giving & care taking, companionship, friendship development, support systems)
  • Physical Needs (housing & intentional communities, healthcare, transportation, financial, sexual health and well-being, exercise)
  • Mental Needs (learning, growing, forums, lectures, panels, presentations, workshops, support groups, expanding mindsets)
  • Spiritual Needs (connectivity, self-awareness, renewal, self-enlightenment, reinvention and evolving)

SAGE Utah is divided into 5 affiliate Utah regions with a master strategy of Support, Advocacy, and Celebration for Sagers throughout the state. Embracing the SAGE within, building awareness, outreach, support programs, activities, events, education, and information sharing are at the very core of SAGE Utah’s mission. SAGE Utah also offers multi-generational historical sharing, performing and visual arts mentoring. Additionally, a series in sexual health and well-being, spiritual healing and recovery, caregiving and caregiver support, shifting the aging mindset, legal rights and benefits, intentional communities, resource sharing, time banks, and much more. There are regularly scheduled SAGE activities, events, potlucks, performing and visual art outings, as well as other chances to meet with others to learn, laugh, understand, and share.

Recent Highlights

Ask the Elders

Beginning in October 2012, Sage Utah will be offering an exciting new program, “Ask the Elders.” The purpose of Ask the Elders is to cultivate and support the genius of gay and lesbian youth. This once-a-month, 90-minute gathering is an intergenerational dialogue exchange between older and younger LGBT people around important Queer Life issues, topics, and shifts. LGBT people of all ages are welcome to attend and participate. If you are interested in sitting on one of the Ask The Elders panels, please contact or

Garden Party
On Sunday August 5, 2012, SAGE Utah held a sold-out Garden Party at the historic & beautiful Memorial House & Gardens, in Memory Grove, Salt Lake City, UT. This summer chic event was open to all, and included a lovely brunch, elegant entertainment, an inspiring short speaker, the annual SAGE Utah Awards, and an opportunity to gather and celebrate SAGE and all it proudly represents.
