This report summarises the proceedings and outcomes of the AAG workshop on LGBTI Elders: In Their Own Words held on 7 November 2017 in Perth. The workshop aimed to give participants unique insights into the social histories of LGBTI elders, building empathy and motivation to foster inclusivity within their own workplaces.
In response to this report, AAG affirmed it believes that older LGBTI people should experience a high-quality aged care system that ensures equitable access and outcomes and embraces their diverse characteristics and life experiences. AAG resolves to continue to work collaboratively with LGBTI elders, our partners and stakeholders to advocate for and support this objective.
