SAGE Atlanta (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) is a member of the SAGE USA affiliate network. We sponsor social alternatives to provide personal interaction, offer educational opportunities to deal with the special needs of aging, and promote contact with the isolated and homebound members of our community.
SAGE is also an advocate for the concerns and needs of the senior GLBT community at large, promoting inter-generational communication in the LGBT community and positive images of LGBT life in the later years.
We help LGBT seniors/elders:
- Access quality and non-biased healthcare and support services for seniors
- Advocate for LGBT elder rights and nondiscrimination practices
- Combat social isolation and promoting a positive aging image
- Access educational resources regarding the needs of LGBT seniors/elders
