Over 60 & LGBT? Take a Survey

The San Francisco LGBT Aging Policy Task Force wants to hear from LGBT seniors in San Francisco. CAPSFlogo

The San Francisco LGBT Aging Policy Task Force, established this past fall by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, has been charged to bring back actionable policy recommendations to advance services for and improve the lives of LGBT seniors in San Francisco.  The Task Force, in partnership with the Institute for Multigenerational Health at the University of Washington, has developed an online community needs survey, Caring and Aging in San Francisco, to better understand the aging and health needs of San Francisco’s LGBT seniors.  The Task Force needs your help to ensure that historically underrepresented groups, including LGBT seniors of color, lesbians and transgender seniors, are adequately represented in both the research and policy recommendations.

To participate in this project you must be LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender)–or someone who is attracted to or has had an intimate/sexual relationship with someone of your same sex or gender–60 years of age or older and living in San Francisco.  The survey is available in English, Chinese, Spanish, Russian and Tagalog.  Please help us ensure that all LGBT seniors are represented!

To complete the online survey, please visit CaringandAging.org/survey.  If you have difficulty accessing the online survey and prefer a hard copy, you may contact Meals On Wheels of San Francisco at (415) 920-1111 to request one.
