The 2017 Annual Summit on LGBT Aging for North Texas will be held on Saturday November 4, 2017.

As the Coalition for Aging LGBT continues to serve and support the aging members of the LGBT Community in North Texas, the 2017 Annual event will be held in Dallas County. This is our first time back in Dallas County since our Inaugural Summit in 2015.

Join us for the 2017 Annual Summit by the Coalition for Aging, LGBT to explore the vast needs and services for members of the aging LGBT community in North Texas. The Coalition for Aging LGBT is focused on addressing and coordinating the specific aging needs of the almost 200,000 members age 45 and above in the LGBT Community in North Texas. There are many programs developed for non-LGBT citizens, however access to these programs for LGBT citizens is a challenge due to possible discrimination or LGBT citizens unable (or unwilling) to live their lives according to their orientation – basically going back into the closet.

The purpose of our Summits are to educate the community and the service providers on the challenges of aging in the LGBT Community. This is a continue an ongoing conversation with the LGBT Community and allies on ways to address this challenge that will affect so many.
