LGBTQ+ elders experience unique barriers to affirming and safe housing, employment, caregiving, healthcare, and numerous means of support. Often facing the compounded impacts of homophobia and transphobia with other forms of discrimination, such as ageism, racism, ableism, and classism, LGBTQ+ elders are vulnerable to having their rights breached.
