CLE - LGBTQ Older Adults and Cultural Competency

In the public interest community, one of our most vulnerable client populations is older adults. More so, older adults who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer face even more unique challenges when accessing legal services because the intersection of age and sexual identity is not always easily understood, disclosed or appreciated. This CLE will aim to educate participants on basic concepts and vocabulary such as sexual orientation and gender identity terms, it will discuss how the LGBTQ older adult community navigates societal and institutional bias and prejudice, and it will provide advocates with the knowledge and terminology necessary to promote awareness and inclusivity in their client relationships and allow us all to be allies with this community.
