National ‘Honor Our LGBT Elders’ Day at Baltimore Eagle

Oldie but goodie Oldie but goodie

Chase Brexton Health Care will join communities and organizations around the world in celebration of National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day on Tuesday, May 16th, a day of recognition established by Chase Brexton’s own LGBT Health Resource Center. The challenges, struggles, and triumphs of older LGBT adults who fought for greater freedoms will be highlighted during a special event from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Baltimore Eagle (2022 North Charles Street, Baltimore).

Community members will highlight an LGBT elder who made a difference in their life. Featured speakers include:

• Catherine Hyde, PFLAG Howard County

• James Burrell, The Power Project of Chase Brexton Health Care

• Felicia French, Baltimore City Department of Aging (retired)

• Peter Dayton, Mr. Maryland Leather 2017

• Merrick Moses, State’s Attorney’s Office

• Nancy West, Faith Communities with Pride

• Carrietta Heirs, LGBT elder activist

• And, in the tradition of storytelling, a selection from a volunteer audience member.

Tickets are $25 or “pay what you can,” and include food, soda, and a commemorative gift, and are available by visiting Tinyurl.com/2017lgbtelderday. Interested individuals may also “pay it forward” by sponsoring a ticket for someone in the community.

Information will also be available about SAGECAP Baltimore, a joint program between the LGBT Health Resource Center and SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders) which offers support to LGBT older adults and caregivers.

This evening of stories and conversation was made possible with the generous support of PNC Bank.
