The nationwide celebration includes a flagship event in Baltimore at Baltimore Center Stage on May 16; to learn more about the event, click here.

There are an estimated 3 million LGBT adults over the age of 55 throughout the U.S.

“It’s important to celebrate elders every day,” said Sam McClure, director of the Center for LGBTQ Health Equity, which inaugurated the national day of recognition in Baltimore in 2016. “Respect for those with more experience is an essential element of civility. In intergenerational dialogues, we discover we have differing opinions based on our experiences and perspectives. I love seeing Elders and youth learning from each other.”

McClure will be available to speak to media on Monday, May 15 and Tuesday, May 16 to further discuss the important of LGBT Elders in our communities and the evolution of National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day.
