GRIOT Article in Generations
GRIOT Circle was invited to draft an article for the American Society on Aging’s journal, Generations. The submitted article was co-written by GRIOT staff – Aundaray Guess and Katherine Acey – along with Hyun-Jun Kim, Sarah Jen, and Karen I. Fredriksen-Goldsen and is titled, “A Collaboration for Health and Wellness: GRIOT Circle and Caring and Aging with Pride.”
Mashable Article on GRIOT Circle and Aging
“For LGBTQ seniors, the need for community is particularly acute. The population is twice as likely to live alone, twice as likely to be single and almost 75% less likely to have children. Internalized stigma, coupled with structural discrimination, makes it difficult for queer and trans seniors — who disproportionately live in poverty — to receive the critical social services they need.”
Since 1996, GRIOT Circle has provided a welcoming space, culturally sensitive services, and member-centered programming that affirm the lives of LGBTQ elders of color. Much of this is made possible because of our generous supporters.
