The Stonewall Generation – LGBTQ Elders on Sex, Activism, and Aging
May 18 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 am
The LGBTQ Older Adults Conference is an annual event where experts can join alongside community members to share vital resources, make social and professional connections, and learn how to advocate for the unique needs of LGBTQ older adults so they can age safely, openly, and with dignity. Allies, service providers, caregivers, and LGBTQ community members are encouraged to join us at the conference!
This year, we will be joined by Dr. Jane Fleishman, a writer, award-winning educator, sexuality researcher, and AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator. Her curious nature led to her latest accomplishment, The Stonewall Generation: LGBTQ Elders on Sex, Activism, and Aging.
In the book, Dr. Fleishman shares the stories of fearless elders in the LGBTQ community who came of age around the time of the Stonewall riots of 1969. In candid interviews, they lay bare their struggles, strengths, activism, and sexual liberation in the context of the political movements of the 1960s and 1970s, as well as today. These are the stories of those whose lives were changed forever by Stonewall and who in turn became agents of changing themselves.
The Q&A section will feature a few of the subjects from the book.
LGBTQ Older Adults Conference: Tuesday, May 18th, 11 – 1 pm CDT [ 6 – 7am HST ]
