This website

This site contains information of interest to older LGBT People. Polari logo We've inherited some resources from Polari (closed 2009), including documents, a bibliography, and a list (still being added to) of links to other sites featuring older LGBT people.

A small group of us (see Who's who) got together to set up Age of Diversity, originally to campaign for and by older gay, lesbian, and trans people, but currently to provide what we hope will be a useful information resource.
