SAGE Table is produced by Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) in partnership with AARP.
Both advocacy groups are joining forces to address the diverse needs within the aging LGBT community. Our nation’s growing number of elders continues to be overlooked and siloed from resources including our younger generations. AARP’s #disruptaging campaign video demonstrates that we can begin to bridge this age gap by direct intergenerational engagement.
SAGE Table creates the opportunity for LGBT people to explore what caring for one another can look like when age no longer divides us. This conversation is especially important for LGBT elders who often face unique challenges. Together we can be stronger.
AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, with a membership of nearly 38 million that helps people turn their goals and dreams into ‘Real Possibilities’ by changing the way America defines aging.

AARP also advocates for individuals in the marketplace by selecting products and services of high quality and value to carry the AARP name.
