Many LGBTQ seniors are estranged from their origin families and do not have children to look after them especially those who are HIV+ due to stigma.
So, to help raise awareness, Adam & Rooney spent some time in Philadelphia at the John C. Anderson Apartments, a housing facility for queer seniors, to better understand the hurdles faced by those queer and aging with HIV.
Also, if you’d like to give back, then you’re in luck! Volunteering with LGBTQ senior’s is simple, fulfilling and important. Click the links below to find a volunteer opportunity near you!
