New York City is opening what they say is the country’s first ever full-service center for seniors who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.
City officials said that more often than not, LGBT seniors feel isolated from other seniors and centers struggle to meet their needs.
The Chelsea SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) Innovative Senior Center launched today and will service seniors in all five boroughs.
Programs tailored to LGBT health, wellness, and nutrition will be available year round.
