2016-SummerThe American Society on Aging has devoted the summer edition of their quarterly journal, Generations, to the topic of LGBT Aging. The Summer 2016 issue showcases cutting-edge practices, programs, policy initiatives, and research designed to better address the unmet needs and lack of access to services for LGBT older adults, their families, and communities.
