“"Born between 1946 and 1964, LGBT Baby Boomers advanced the U.S. gay rights movement and within one generation succeeded in changing social attitudes.... Many unanswered questions emerge as this cohort ages into retirement and beyond and its ability to change the face of aging as much as it has changed attitudes about sexual orientation and gender identity."”

Expanding on insights gained from its 2006 award-winning "Out and Aging" study, conducted in partnership with the American Society on Aging’s LGBT Aging issues Network (LAIN), "Still Out, Still Aging" provides both an update and broader scope in looking at the LGBT population in comparison to the general population. What will happen when this cohort ages into retirement and beyond? Will it change the face of aging as much as it has changed attitudes about sexual orientation and gender identity? What are the critical concerns, needs, and issues that affect LGBT Boomers as they move beyond middle age?
