Check out this great article from the most recent Sound Generations E-News, found HERE.
At Sound Generations, we pride ourselves on not just acknowledging the diversity of older community members, but also taking steps to ensure that we are supporting the unique challenges that come with being a part of marginalized communities. The month of June is recognized nationally as LGBTQIA+ Pride Month and we would like to take a moment to celebrate the older adults who identify as LGBTQIA+ and acknowledge that the progress toward equality could not have been made possible without them.
Being out and visible as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community has always presented challenges for people on a personal, professional, and systemic scale. There is still much work to be done, but we cannot discredit how far we have come in embracing the LGBTQIA+ community, and more specifically, the older adults in that community who helped pave the way for generations after them.
