Introducing the LGBT+ Discussion Group

LGBTQ_town-hall-meeting

Calling all older adults in the LGBT+ community!  

You are invited to Senior Planet’s newest social offering: our Pride Discussion Group. 

Join us for a bi-weekly social hour of discussion and fun where you will can connect with other older adults in the community. Discussion topics will vary month to month but will cover a wide variety of subjects. We’ll talk about it all! Everything from representation in cinema to dating as an older adult to innovative ways to advocate for change. 

This group was created after the success of Senior Planet’s first ever Pride Event Series, where participants expressed a desire to continue to meet new people and strengthen bonds with others in our community.  

“Inclusion is extremely important to make everyone feel like they have a place they belong.”

When asked why curating this meeting space is crucial, Aaron A. Santis, Senior Planet Colorado’s Program Lead, says: “Inclusion is extremely important to make everyone feel like they have a place they belong. Senior Planet is a safe space for all older adults to come connect and learn no matter what. Having an LGBT+ older adult group provides an outlet for older adults to connect within the LGBT + community virtually, safely and without judgement.” (For an interview with an expert on LGBT+ issues, visit here.)

  1. Thank you very much for this discussion group.
    I hope we can receive reminders monthly of when the group will be meeting each month, like I do for the Chair Yoga classes with Tina Wang that have helped me survive the Covid isolation.
