“It’s important to celebrate elders every day,” said Sam McClure, director of the Center for LGBTQ Health Equity, which inaugurated the national day of recognition in Baltimore in 2016. “Respect for those with more experience is an essential element of civility. In intergenerational dialogues, we discover we have differing opinions based on our experiences and perspectives. I love seeing Elders and youth learning from each other.”

McClure is available to speak to media to further discuss the important of LGBT Elders in our communities and the evolution of National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day.
