Annual LGBT Older Adult Training

SAGE Metro Detroit was established in 2015. Its roots grew from the LGBT Older Adult Coalition, which was founded in 2010 and transformed into the SAGE Metro Detroit affiliate upon creation. SAGE Metro Detroit aims to build awareness and promote change so that LGBT older adults may age with dignity and authenticity. SAGE Metro Detroit primarily serves four counties in Michigan: Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Wayne.


We focus our work and resources in four main areas:

Advocacy: Informing and influencing Michigan landscape on LGBT aging through community-based, local, and state advocacy efforts.

Information: Empowering LGBT older adults through availability of accurate information to make important life decisions and to advocate on behalf of themselves.

Services: Developing professional and well-run services and programs to aging LGBT individuals in Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Wayne Counties.

Training: Providing training and education to organizations, service providers, faith institutions, and businesses on the aging LGBT population.

SAGE Metro Detroit works closely with a number of LGBT and aging service organizations within and around Metro Detroit, including AAA1-B, AARP Michigan, The ACLU of Michigan, Community Connections (village network of Presbyterian Villages of Michigan), The Detroit Area Agency on Aging (1-A), The Detroit Elder Project at LGBT Detroit, Equality Michigan, The Luella Hannan Memorial Foundation, Optimal Care, The Senior Alliance (1-C), and Senior Koffee Klatch. Affirmations is both a partner and the official parent organization for SAGE Metro Detroit, providing free office space and meeting room space.
