We are a collaborative group of like minded individuals from the LGBTQ+ community and allies who are driven by one primary goal, to make the world a better place for all individuals! Our mission is to provide community outreach, education, supportive programs, foster inclusive care communities and care providers, expand socialization opportunities, and intergenerational programs in the Northern, VA area and throughout the country for LGBT older adults. We want to work with individuals and communities across the country to foster these programs and ideals! We strive to build productive relationships and to make a positive impact with all our pursuits.
