Saturday Oct. 1, at Friendly House

This dynamic outreach event, the largest of its kind in the nation, addresses the social, health and housing needs of Metro Portland’s older LGBT community. The Expo offers LGBT senior housing resources; gay friendly senior service information; break-out sessions on topics such as sex after 60, LGBT travel and recreation, living well with HIV, end of life concerns & celebrations, and spirituality. There will be a vendor fair with a wide range of agencies and businesses committed to improving the lives of LGBT older adults and seniors. The price of admission is a $5 suggested donation; no one will be turned away. Sponsorships of the event and proceeds from food sales will support ongoing advocacy and outreach by Friendly House’s SAGE Metro Portland program.
