SAGE Renames LGBT Senior Center for Lesbian Pioneer, Edie Windsor

By KaeLyn
You remember Edie Windsor, the woman who fought to win marriage equality for us all and who passed away earlier this year at the age of 88? SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders), the nation’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT elders, is renaming their NYC Midtown SAGE Center to honor Edie Windsor. The center will become The Edie Windsor SAGE Center.

Michael Adams, the CEO of SAGE, commented on the occassion: “Edie Windsor brought so much light to our community, with her pink lipstick smile, her iconic hat tilted just so, and her willingness to be a beacon of hope for us all. That’s why we are proud to dedicate The Edie Windsor SAGE Center in honor of a woman who loved us and fought for LGBT equality and LGBT elders with all her might.”

Rest in Power, Edie. We love you!
