This episode of Graying Rainbows features Sherrill Wayland, Director of National Programs for SAGE USA, a key advocacy group that works to improve conditions for LGBT+ elders. Problems of concern include social isolation and access to housing and healthcare. In some parts of the country LGBT+ elders are being forced back into the closet due to religious discrimination masquerading as religious freedom.

We also talk about  the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, which provides resources for both elders and their care givers.
