LGBT INCLUSIVE VILLAGESBy Blog Master
Our world has not always been so open, yet we still have much more work to do… as individuals and as a Village. There are many challenges to growing older. For LGBT seniors these challenges are exacerbated by decades of marginalization and discrimination. This often translates into greater isolation, as well as limited family support. Housing and other forms of discrimination still exist.
By connecting with our LGBTQ peers we offer solutions for isolation, opportunities to broaden our understanding and we discover common ground to build lasting bonds. The results are mutually enriching.
Our village is making important progress in building relationships with the LGBTQ community both one-on-one and with organizations including the San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center, PFLAG Pasadena, and the organizers of the GayOut Parade, and we look forward to fostering mutually beneficial relationships with other organizations and faith communities that serve those who identify as LGBTQ.
During the presentation, Pasadena Village members expressed how welcoming fellow village members were to them when they joined. Pasadena Village members are developing cultural competency with the guidance of the Inclusivity Committee and the openness and welcoming attitude of our members.
If you were not able to attend the presentation Pasadena Village co-hosted with Village Movement California you can watch the recording on LGBT Inclusive Villages, click here. Take pride in knowing our Village was spotlighted.
