About ‘Gen Silent’

gensilentGay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender older people who fought the first battles for equality now face so much fear of discrimination, bullying and abuse that many are hiding their lives to survive.

Thousands are dying earlier than their straight counterparts because they are isolated and afraid to ask for help.

But a growing number of people are fighting to keep LGBT aging from meaning aging in silence.
