LGBT Aging and Healthcare:  A Cultural Competency Perspective 2015

On Monday, March 23, 2015 at STAR Campus, the LGBT Caucus in collaboration with the United Way of Delaware and Christiana Care is hosting a HealthCare Symposium entitled:  “LGBT Aging and HealthCare:  A Cultural Competency Perspective 2015” from 2:00pm – 5:30pm.

Along with a community services panel we will also feature the film, Gen Silent.  This film is the critically acclaimed documentary from filmmaker Stu Maddux (Bob and Jack’s 52-Year Adventure, Trip to Hell and Back) that asks six LGBT seniors if they will hide their friends, their spouses- their entire lives in order to survive in the care system. Many who won the first civil rights victories for generations to come are now dying prematurely because they are reluctant to ask for help and have too few friends or family to care for them. Gen Silent  shows the disparity in the quality of paid caregiving from mainstream care facilities committed to making their LGBT residents safe and happy,  to places where LGBT elders face discrimination by staff and bullying by other seniors.
