“LGBT seniors? That only involves young people, doesn’t it?” The topic of LGBT seniors is so rarely discussed that this group is practically invisible. Furthermore, we do not know much about the lives of LGBT seniors. Reports from abroad tell us that LGBT people are often lonely in old age, primarily because they do not have children and a strong family network that would take care of them. Many older gays and lesbians somewhat lack such warm contact with our community.
This is not merely an intergenerational interactive meeting. We will find out how LGBT seniors in the Czech Republic feel, what they can do for themselves, how the younger generation approaches them in the community and the majority society. We will also hear the results of a new study issued by PROUD this year.
