Seeking Shelter: Building Housing and Community for LGBTQ Elders (Encore)

Never miss a show! Email Signup Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts


Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender seniors are much more likely than their straight counterparts to be alone and isolated as they age. Housing and support for these elders is a growing need–and the issue is not confined to the United States. In this edition, we’ll visit Jakarta Indonesia, and Los Angeles, California, to hear stories of building housing and community for LGBTQ seniors.
