Caring and Aging with Pride is a ground-breaking project designed to better understand the aging and health needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) adults 50 years of age and older. The National LGBT Health and Aging Center reveals the findings from Caring and Aging with Pride in the landmark national report, The Aging and Health Report: Disparities and Resilience among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Older Adults which paints a vivid portrait of the lives of LGBT older adults, contrasting disparities with resilience. Generating new knowledge on health and aging across these diverse communities will help us recognize and reduce health disparities experienced by LGBT older adults now and for generations to come.
This pioneering project is a collaboration between 11 LGBT community aging agencies around the nation (see Community Partners page) and the Institute for Multigenerational Health at the University of Washington. The project is funded through a major federal grant with the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Institute on Aging (NIA).
