Following a 2013/14 survey of Edmonton LGBTQ persons aged 55 years and older, the Edmonton Pride Senior Group developed a training presentation for senior programs, centres, and housing to assist staff and their organizations to ‘Put on the Ritz’ in appropriately, graciously, and warmly welcoming older queer folks.

The discussion will cover: the major components of a staff training presentation, useful techniques, and vocabulary. Be sure that your organization is rolling out the red (or rainbow) carpet! 

  • To create an awareness of LGBTQ seniors.
  • Provide an overview of a training program to assist organizations/staff to welcome older LGBTQ adults.
  • Engage in techniques and activities to ‘roll out’ the carpet and welcome LGBTQ older adults in services, centres, programming and senior housing.
