The purpose of this study is to develop a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ older adults’ experience of aging in Canada. In particular, we are interested in identifying any barriers and facilitators to participating fully in society. We are interested to hear your experience aging so far and any unique needs you may have as you age given your sexual orientation/gender identity.

We will ask you questions to explore this and will ask you about the types of resources and supports that you wish you had and what messages you would like to share with decision makers. The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has funded this project.

To be eligible for this research we are looking for people aged 60 and older who live in Canada and self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or queer+.

The hope of this research is to ultimately promote an inclusive society that addresses the needs of elderly LGBTQ+. Your participation will be of benefit to yourself, service providers, policy makers, the field of social work, gerontology and sexuality and the community in general.

Your participation will provide you with an opportunity to make your voice heard on this important topic.
