Re: “Aging Back in the Closet

This is a great article, and brings needed attention to an important topic. However, I'd like to offer a correction to one point. You write, "National LGBT organizations like the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Elders) are working to promote LGBT senior rights, and have gotten groups like AARP and the American Society on Aging to consider this population in their efforts."
As a matter of fact, the American Society on Aging (ASA), a professional membership organization, has been a pioneer in bringing attention to the issues and concerns of the LGBTQI population. Our LGBT Aging Issues Network (LAIN), one of 8 membership constituency groups, was first formed in 1994 and brought national attention to LGBT aging at a time when SAGE was a local New York City social service provider, and organizations such as the Task Force were definitely not prioritizing the issues of LGBT elders. All of the organizations and people discussed in your article are doing and have been doing great work. But it is a matter of record that ASA has been a leader, not a follower, in these issues.
