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.

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.
