For Creating the Path and Leading the Way
Stay Up-to-Date with National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day
National Day registry as National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day.
National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day is a new effort to draw awareness to and appreciation of the lifetime of contributions made by LGBT older adults. The gains made in recent years toward LGBT equality sit squarely on the backs of those whose struggles and victories, extraordinary courage and everyday authenticity, pioneered the path toward freedom. Honor Our LGBT Elders Day works to unite the LGBTQ community and its allies to celebrate and thank those individuals who fought on behalf of us all.
Join the celebration with our social media toolkit, or check out our resource guides for ideas on planning your own National Honor Our LGBT Elder Day projects and events.
The LGBT Health Resource Center of Chase Brexton Health Care will commemorate National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day 2017 with stories and conversations at the newly-opened Baltimore Eagle on May 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. For more information about this event, click here.

For the inaugural National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day in 2016, students from the University of Maryland Baltimore County paired with LGBT older adults to share the life stories and experiences of the elder members of our community. View their video projects below.
