We care across New York for older LGBTQ adults in need of a safe, welcoming home health care environment
Today, LGBTQ Americans find themselves living in a world of emerging normalcy, PRIDE, and marriage equality. Yet sadly, too many of the Stonewall Generation—people born in the years before Stonewall—are still living in fear, alone and isolated. They continue to suffer with a health care system that too often discriminates against them and prevents them from receiving the critical care they need.
In addition to this cultural sensitivity training, VNSNY expanded its Senior LGBTQ Outreach with funding from a New York Community Trust grant. Our expanded outreach program is committed to supporting the health of LGBTQ seniors in the New York City area through collaborations with community-based organizations that serve New York’s elderly LGBTQ population. The program is also educating organizations, providers, and patients about VNSNY’s LGBTQ-related initiatives, including our gender affirmation surgery program, which is the largest in the city.
