Oregon LGBTQ+ Older Adult Survey Results

This presentation is to share results from the first ever statewide survey of adults age 55 and older who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two Spirit and non-binary as well as sexual or gender diverse (LGBTQ+) to provide detailed feedback on the needs and supports of Oregon’s LGBTQ+ older adults. Survey participants were also asked to highlight strengths within the state’s various LGBTQ+ communities. Survey results will be shared as well as proposed next steps and action items. 

Intended audience:  This presentation is appropriate for all professionals working with older adults, whether in a long-term care or health care setting or a community center or community based organization. It is also appropriate for educators, researchers, and students in the field of gerontology, sociology, social work, public health, and health sciences. Finally, professionals working at the city, county, or state level of government and community developers can gain from a richer understanding of the LGBTQ aging experience.

Presenters:

Debbie McCuin, MA and Naomi Sacks, MSW

Oregon Department of Human Services, Aging and Disabilities, Community Services and Supports Unit

Why do we ask for a fee?

OGA is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. Events and donations are our main sources of income to fund our educational and networking programs.

Reduced or complementary event registration is one of the great benefits for OGA members! If you like our educational program - we strive to offer at least one event per month - becoming a member will pay off quickly! To learn more about OGA membership, please visit our Membership page.

However, we understand that many of us are struggling to make ends meet these days. No one will be turned away! If you cannot afford $5 at this moment, please contact us at [email protected] - thanks to the generous donations of OGA members and friends throughout the year, we can cover a small number of registrations for each event.
