Living Memory LGBT History Timeline

Submitted by Sunil Patel on Thursday, 16 August 2007 - 11:41pm.

Lesbian, gay male, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) elders may approach "mainstream" aging, health, and other public and private services differently than their heterosexual and/or gender-normative peers. Every person is shaped in part by the major public events that happen during their lifetime, whether these events are tragedies like 9/11 or struggles and triumphs like the Civil Rights Movement or passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Although each individual will draw different conclusions and make different life choices in reaction to such public events, knowing what was reported in the media and discussed at dinner during a person's lifetime may help others understand how that individual's worldview was shaped.
