Tim discussed what makes LGBT older adults different from their non-LGBT peers, the specific challenges facing transgender older adults, spirituality in the LGBT community, baby-boomers that come out as LGBT, and the work that the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging is doing nationally to train aging service providers on LGBT cultural competency.
