Pride Action Tank Presents OUTAging!

OUTAgingOUTAging is being organized by a planning committee that includes AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Center on Halsted, SAGE and LGBTQ older adults.

The goals of OUTAging are to:

  • Create a platform that centers the voices and experiences of LGBTQ older adults to shed light on the issues they face and gaps in services, resources and opportunities.
  • Provide a diverse and inclusive forum for redefining aging and care and
  • Develop an agenda for advocacy, resources and inclusion with and for LGBTQ older adults.

The opening reception is free and open to everyone. Day 1 of the summit is free and ONLY for LGBTQ older adults (55+) who are not paid staff of service providers or related institutions. Registration for Day 2 is $35 before May 12 & $45 after and is open to anyone, but is targeted to service providers, researchers, funders, policy makers and others whose work or interests include improving outcomes for LGBTQ older adults.

We’ll start with an opening reception at Affinity Community Services, located in Bronzeville on Chicago’s south side. The remainder of the summit will take place at a loop location hosted by AARP. See the schedule below for more info.

Oak Park Temple is a proud community partner of this event.
