Taking Care of Our Own: Best Practices and Tools to Develop Affordable LGBT Elder Housing

Join housing experts and advocates to discuss tools and best practices for developing and sustaining affordable housing for LGBT elders, including a robust map for staying aligned to mission in perpetuity. Learn about what works and what to watch out for, with holistic attention paid to the collaboration between three key players: the developer, service provider, and management company of a building. Special focus and attention will be given to crisis planning and the disparate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on LGBT elders’ access to safe, affordable housing.

Housing Models Grounded in Equity: Community Displacement, Tensions, and Collective Resilience

How does COVID help us prepare for future crises in diverse geographies? LGBT elders do not solely reside in urban centers. Gentrification’s impact on affordability, accessibility, and an elder’s ability to stay where LGBTQ rights have been trailblazed is evident in our current moment, necessitating a stronger presence in rural and suburban communities due to displacement. If elders are forced out of urban centers, what legal protections and housing is available elsewhere? What can we be doing to mobilize communities around support, safety, and enhanced understanding of LGBT elder needs? Visibility and public education in non-urban areas and in aging facilities is critical. Let’s discuss strategies to address these national dynamics.

Legislation, Policy and Community: Advocacy Considerations in the Current Moment

2020 has brought underlying issues of inequity to the forefront, through both a global pandemic and community outrage in the movement for Black lives. Beyond forming intentional communities, what legal protections and policies can protect LGBT elders? What innovative ways are people developing alternative systems? A dearth of affordable housing has forced us to look at policy and advocacy with innovation, including legal protection and high-level policies aimed to reach LGBT elders in a diverse array of communities amidst the current public health and social justice climates.
