Bent Aging panel

Bent is a monthly event that showcases community members who discuss their
knowledge and expertise on various chosen topics that change each month. A
one-hour moderated panel discussion is followed by a one-hour open format Q&A
with the audience, creating an educational and interactive experience.

This month we present Bent Aging looking at how the LGBT community adapts to
ageing. Do queer people have different concerns on ageing compared to
heterosexuals? Are resources in place to accommodate queer individuals as they
reach retirement age? Should an exclusive queer seniors residence be an option?
Do queers have health issues more specific to themselves as they age? How does
our current government infrastructure facilitate the transition into elder
care? What resources and counselling are available for queer seniors? Let's
talk about sex!

Drop by, listen in, and have your say.
