SAGE Atlanta is hosting a community forum on Sunday, May 22, at the Phillip Rush Center for a webcast with other activists to discuss ways to meet the needs of elderly LGBT people. The forum begins at 2:30 p.m.
SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders), a national organization with 20 affiliates across the nation including the newly formed Atlanta affiliate, will be broadcasting a live meeting online from the New York LGBT Center to screens at the Phillip Rush Center.
Participants in Atlanta will have a chance to watch the meeting along with other affiliates and take part in a national conversation to learn about what SAGE is working for in its mission to finding ways to meet the needs of aging gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
Doug Carl, who heads up the Atlanta SAGE affiliate, said recently he hopes an earnest movement begins in the city to address needs for LGBT people as they age.
“We want to harness existing resources and find the gaps and then start linking the dots," he said. “We’ve got to begin somewhere so let’s start with a conversation. We’ve done everything we can to bring issues to light, now let’s bring them to life.”
