Make a Gift Now To Support LGBTQ Elders of Color & GRIOT Circle

GRIOT (Gay Reunion In Our Time) is dedicated to working with and serving the needs and well-being of LGBTQ elders of color. Our mission is to respond to and eliminate all forms of oppression, including ageism, racism, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, poverty, and their intersections. We achieve this by providing health, wellness, advocacy, and leadership activities to remove isolation and fear, build community, as well as honor racial and ethnic traditions.

Our elder population is generally overlooked when it comes to appropriate resources and education. GRIOT takes pride in helping to provide our members with a variety of services that focus on their well-being.  Your contribution helps us to provide much needed programs to our community.
