Started Something!

Those who have been following my blog know that for the last year I have been working with a group of non-profits, senior centers and state agencies in organizing a LGBT day at senior centers around the state and it has taken off.

We have added a number of new towns and cities to those who want to have a LGBT day at their centers, this month we have two centers that will hold a day at their centers. This month for the first time there will be two senior centers holding a LGBT day at their centers and one center is a new member. There are also a number of centers east of the Connecticut River that wants to join the group.

On our Facebook page some of the “likes” are from other LGBT senior groups from around the country, so the idea is catching not only here in Connecticut but also in other states. One senor group is from Ohio and another group is the Trans Aging Project.

You can see this year’s schedule on our website here. So if you live in Connecticut, a senior (over 50) and want something to do give the LGBT days at the senior centers a visit and meet new people, and do new things.

You have to be LGBT to come to a center, the programs are open to everyone, I’m definitely going the Plainville LGBT Day and play miniature golf which I haven’t played in ages.
