Over the Rainbow: LGBT2Q+ Seniors in the Lower Mainland

March 7 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Do you work with seniors in the Lower Mainland? Are you a senior in LGBT2Q+ communities, or an ally? Do you want to gather with other older adults and service providers to shine a light on issues facing queer and trans seniors?

People of all cultures and backgrounds are invited to join us as we launch a new Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Two-Spirit, Queer/Questioning (LGBT2Q+) Community Response Network (CRN) for Seniors! Participation is free, with lunch included.

Keynote Speaker Jen Marchbank

Professor, Department of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies

Facilitator Claire Robson

Lend your voice to discussions around reducing vulnerability to isolation, abuse, neglect, and self neglect. Together, we can contribute to a province-wide movement to see a socially connected, equitable and safe future for queer and trans seniors.
