Thanks, NLGJA! Honored to win your 2015 2nd place Excellence in Online Journalism Award for this. I’m also honored to be included in Huffington Post’s Best Journalists Covering LGBT Issues writers.
The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association award is for my 2014 Caring.com piece, Finding Pride and Home: A Look at Housing for Older LGBT Adults. Moving to an assisted living home should never mean stepping back into a closet. That seems obvious to those of us living out and proud lives in post-Stonewall Riots America. But it’s an ever-present reality for many older adults.
For my Caring.com article , I explore how we can provide more prejudice-free and inclusive facilities for the aging LGBT community, where they feel as much sense of community as other residents.
