Supporting LGBT+ Ageing Care

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


This was invited talk with simultaneous translation in Turkish for the Human Rights Programme, KAOS Turkey.
Abstract - There is substantial evidence on the adverse impact of ageing on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans and non-binary (LGBT+) populations through the lack of inclusive care services. This is despite research that documents that LGBT+ people report poorer health than the general population and worse experiences of healthcare. This presentation will draw on findings from my research which highlights the issues for working within ageing communities, how ageing intersects with sexual and gender identities, and the importance of co-production and participation in achieving change within professional practice.
