SAGE -- Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders -- was granted $100,000 over two years from the David Bohnett Foundation on Tuesday.

"This grant from the David Bohnett Foundation is a very important step forward for SAGE and the LGBT aging field because it will fund critical new advocacy efforts on behalf of LGBT seniors all across the country," said Michael Adams, SAGE's executive director in a press release. "We're very grateful that the Bohnett Foundation has recognized that the time has come for the LGBT community to start paying attention to the needs of our pioneering seniors."

The new grant will fund sessions on advocacy issues at "It's About Time: LGBT Aging in a Changing World," SAGE's fourth national conference on LGBT aging, sponsored by AARP. The conference will focus on the formation of a new national advocacy initiative designed to eliminate discrimination against LGBT seniors in government policies on aging.

The event will be held this year in New York City, October 12-14.

SAGE is the world's oldest and largest nonprofit agency dedicated to serving and advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender seniors.
