About our project

Welcome friends & allies;

Our goal is to improve the conditions today’s older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and two-spirit (LGBTQI2S) individuals face when they enter long-term care. This cohort grew up in a time when homosexuality and/or the expression of a transgender identity was particularly hostile. While many positive changes have occurred through time, this cohort feels they must conceal their identity if they need to enter into long-term care. Our goal is to raise awareness of this issue that remains primarily invisible within our healthcare system today, and ideally, start conversations within these organizations that will lead to the development of a system of long-term care that lives and breathes the mantra: that long-term care must be inclusive of diverse individuals. To learn how to get the conversation started in your organization download our workbook and/or work through our Activities Menu*
