Annual Reports

“While we acknowledge what we have done, we also recognize that there is more to do.  There are still far too many vulnerable LGBTQ elders of color in New York City and beyond.  Thus, we want our work to leave the borders of where we are and sail to the shores of others who may be in need.”

Thank you to graphic designer Jennifer Cook for her wonderful skill in visually shaping the report.


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.
