ABOUT THE HONOREE
Dino Georgiou, who will be presented with the SAGE Pioneer Award, is a longtime LGBT organizer and activist. While serving as chairman of SAGE’s Board of Directors in the 1980s, Dino hired legendary SAGE Executive Director Ken Dawson and profoundly shaped the organization in its earliest days. Later, as president of the Board of Directors for the LGBT Community Center in New York City and a participant of its Capital Campaign Committee, Dino was instrumental in the creation of the Center’s current facility on 12th Street in NYC. After moving to Fort Lauderdale, Dino cofounded and for years served on the Board of Directors at SunServe, the largest social services agency serving the LGBT community in Broward Country.
In the current political climate, LGBT older Americans are at risk of losing some of their hard-fought rights. As the leading organization advocating with and providing services to LGBT older adults, SAGE stands proudly with our LGBT pioneers—the people who have been fighting for decades for their right to live with dignity and respect. The proceeds of SAGE & Friends Fort Lauderdale are essential to SAGE’s ability to meet the increasing demand for services and advocacy for LGBT older adults.
