LGBTQ older adults confront unique challenges with isolation, discrimination, and lack of understanding. One Iowa is committed to addressing the barriers that older LGBTQ adults face and developing strategies to meet the needs of this community.
LGBTQ Older Adults Conference
The LGBTQ Older Adults Conference is an annual event where experts can join alongside community members to share vital resources, make social and professional connections, and learn how to advocate for the unique needs of LGBTQ older adults so they can age safely, openly, and with dignity. Allies, service providers, caregivers, and LGBTQ community members are encouraged to join us at the conference!
LGBTQ Older Adult Advisory Council
One Iowa’s LGBTQ Older Adults Advisory Council meets regularly to advise the organization on its strategy for addressing social isolation, housing, healthcare access, and more.
LGBTQ Older Iowans Resource List
LGBTQ older adults face unique challenges to healthcare and support. One Iowa proudly provides a list of resources for older LGBTQ Iowans that can help you learn about local and national organizations that advocate for the equality of LGBTQ older adults. Find the full list here.
We are working with our LGBTQ Older Adult Advisory Council to develop a Friendship Line. Caring, trained volunteers will be available to connect LGBTQ older adults with resources or to just listen. Stay tuned for more details.
