1. Still Out, Still Aging: The MetLife Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Baby Boomers

Publish date: March 2010
Source: American Society on Aging, Metlife

Born between 1946 and 1964, LGBTQ+ Baby Boomers advanced the U.S. gay rights movement and within one generation succeeded in changing social attitudes from seeing homosexuality as a psychiatric condition to winning same-sex marriage rights and acknowledgement of their civil rights in an increasing number of states. Many unanswered questions emerge as this cohort ages into retirement and beyond and its ability to change the face of aging as much as it has changed attitudes about sexual orientation and gender identity.

3. Ten Things Every LGBTQ+ Older Adult Should Know About HIV/AIDS

Source: SAGE

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that weakens the body’s immune system and its ability to fight off diseases and other infections. HIV spreads through bodily fluids—unprotected sex and sharing needles are the most common forms of transmission. A long-lasting HIV infection can lead to AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Thanks to recent advancements in HIV/AIDS treatments, particularly highly active antiretroviral therapies (HAART), many people with HIV/AIDS are living long and healthy lives, transforming HIV for many into a chronic but manageable illness.

4. Understanding Issues Facing LGBTQ+ Older Adults

Publish date: 2017
Source: SAGE, Movement Advancement Project

This report seeks to increase understanding of the unique needs and experiences of LGBTQ+ older adults so that service providers, advocates, the aging network,b and policymakers can consider these challenges when serving this population or passing laws that impact older adults and the LGBTQ+ community. Health and wellbeing, economic security, and social connections are among the cornerstones for successful aging, yet these are areas in which many LGBTQ+ elders face substantial barriers—stemming from current discrimination as well as the accumulation of a lifetime of legal and structural discrimination, social stigma, and isolation. Despite these challenges, many LGBTQ+ elders have survived and even thrived. Others struggle with the burdens of poverty and social isolation. Each older LGBTQ+ adult carries their own story of pride and silence, of resilience and struggle, of love and loss.
