Transgender Law Center is proud to have co-sponsored and helped create this groundbreaking guide for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Elders. “This is an extraordinary resource for transgender seniors and their families who often face barriers to accessing quality services and care. This guide will help seniors live with the dignity and respect we all deserve.” – Masen Davis, Executive Director

The 61-page guide, published by the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Lavender Seniors of the East Bay, Transgender Law Center, Openhouse, and Planning for Elders in the Central City, offers a wide range of resources for the state’s LGBT elders and equips them with the tools they need to:

  • Know California’s anti-discrimination laws
  • Find LGBT-friendly housing and service providers
  • Effectively address discrimination or mistreatment
  • Understand how relationship recognition laws affect benefits
  • Navigate the unique challenges that confront transgender elders
  • Understand how to protect their families and choices with life-planning documents
  • Identify available benefits, particularly for people with disabilities
