This series of programs is free and delivers critical information, resources and social opportunities to LGBTQ older adults. Topics for the programs in the Conversations series are based on input from community members. In collaboration with community organizations and service providers, the LGBT Elder Initiative brings experts in their fields for open and frank discussions and information sharing with consumers and service providers.

The LGBT Elder Initiative has partnered to produce these programs with organizations including: the area agencies on aging (AAA), Alzheimer’s Association, CARIE, AIDS Law Project, Mazzoni Center, Penn Medicine, AIDS Activities Coordinating Office (AACO), Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Center in the Park, William Way Community Center, and many others.

Videographiy for the Conversations series and the video library of these programs are made possible by the generous support of Glenn Sykes and Peter Lien.
