Ageing Gayfully aims at creating more welcoming spaces for people who belong to sexual or gender diversity by offering tools, guides, posters and workshops to people who work with seniors. 

Learn more about the program

Although we don't talk about them very often, 10% of seniors are LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans). Most of them stay in the closet for fear of being discrimated against or left alone. Feeling like they have to hide who they are has serious consequences for their well-being.

Studies confirm that LGBT seniors are particularly vulnerable:

  • 39% of them have already seriously thought about ending their lives,
  • Gay or lesbian seniors are 2 to 3 times more likely to suffer from mental problems than heterosexual seniors. These problems can range from depression and anxiety disorders to suicidal ideation.
  • 53% report living in isolation.

No one should grow old in the closet. 


For the holidays, help us keep our program going !

Don't leave our elders in the closet

Helps us make senior environments more inclusives. With 50$ we can print 25 information guides, with 150$ we can send our exposition about LGBT seniors outside of Montreal. 200$ pays for one workshop in Montreal. With 1500$ we can film and edit a video about the life story of a LGBT senior, and use it as a learning tool.
