Survey aims to better understand needs and experiences of LGBTQ+ elders

SAGE, the world's oldest and largest non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQ+ elders, has partnered with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) School of Public Health to create a public, inaugural State of LGBTQ+ Aging survey with the goal of better understanding and highlighting the experiences, needs, and resiliencies of LGBTQ+ older people across the country.
