LGBT Aging Issues

DAVID HAACK

In his JAKE talk, David Haack shares the lessons he has learned from his early days as a naive, newly graduated nurse to the leadership and experience he has gained today in the healthcare industry. Throughout his journey, David invites us to consider simple and practical steps to build stronger community around our LGBT seniors while helping them thrive and NOT return to the closet.  Additionally, David touches upon the necessity of intergenerational programming in the LGBT aging population, the nuances of aging in the trans* community and simultaneously dispels the myth that most gay men have somehow flocked south to Palm Springs, CA after the age 60.
