I’m honored to win my second National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association Excellence in Online Journalism Award for my Caring.com report, Finding Pride and Home: A Look at Housing for Older LGBT Adults, and to be one of Huffington Post’s Best Journalists Covering LGBT Issues, too.
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.
