Recognizing Our Trailblazers

In the fight for LGBTQ+ rights, every step forward is built upon the courage and resilience of those who came before us. From the Stonewall riots to landmark court cases, their tireless advocacy laid the foundation for progress. This National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day, let’s shine a spotlight on their remarkable achievements and ensure their stories are never forgotten.

Their voices, often marginalized, have been instrumental in driving social change and fostering acceptance. This May 16th, let’s celebrate their lives and honor their unwavering commitment to equality.

Uniting for a Common Cause

As we reflect on the strides we’ve made, let’s also acknowledge the challenges that lie ahead. Many LGBTQ+ elders still face barriers to healthcare, housing, and support services.
