March is Women’s History Month
Across our movement, LGBTQ+ women are listening, learning, and bridging gaps between generations of passionate activists and dedicated changemakers. Across the country, LGBTQ+ women are exploring new ideas, innovating on the past, and pushing boundaries. Across the globe, LGBTQ+ women are leading efforts that will improve the lives of people in their communities for decades to come.
SAGE strives 360 days of the year to create content, resources, and programming as diverse and intersectional as the incredible LGBTQ+ women throughout our community’s history and those who continue to inspire us today.
Celebrate Women’s History Month with us by checking out some of the cool ways SAGE is supporting LGBTQ+ older women, and how these women are supporting SAGE (and the broader community!) in return.
Partnering with Changemakers Across the Globe
Hear from Hannah Yore, SAGE’s International Program Officer, about how SAGE is working in solidarity with partners around the world to expand human rights protections and support LGBTQ+ women in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nepal, and the Philippines. Learn more about SAGE’s global initiatives here.
Programs and Services for women, by women
Across our 5 SAGE Centers we are proud to host a diverse selection of activities, support groups, and events curated for older LGBTQ+ women. These programs include:
- SAGE’s Trans Women’s Support Group – connect with other TGNCNB women virtually on Monday evenings under the expert facilitation of Tanya Walker! Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to register to attend.

Catalyzing change, one woman at a time

LGBTQ+ women wearing their age with pride
Here at SAGE we are committed to combating ageism by elevating elders like Barbara, who show us just how fabulous and empowered aging is when you do so as your authentic self.
