Normal service details...

Older LGBT people have lived through much less tolerant times making their journey towards self-acceptance, a long and arduous one that impacted their confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing. Nowadays, older LGBT people often have diminished support networks resulting in an increased sense of vulnerability and anxiety about ageing.

LGBT Age works with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people aged 50 and over in Greater Glasgow and the Lothians to shape support services and resources for older LGBT people including social events, community activism, resources and volunteering opportunities.
