LGBT Older People and COVID-19

SAGE, the Movement Advancement Project, and CAP co-author a report on how older LGBTQ adults in the United States are faring during the coronavirus pandemic.

Older adults in the United States are at increased risk for contracting COVID-19. They are particularly vulnerable without access during the pandemic to the health care resources and social structures that contribute to overall wellness. This is especially true for the 1.1 million LGBTQ people who are ages 65 and older living across the country.
