About Us

For over 40 years, SAGE has worked tirelessly on behalf of LGBT older people. We’re a national advocacy and services organization that’s been looking out for LGBT elders since 1978. Building off the momentum of the Stonewall uprising and the emerging LGBT civil rights movement, a group of activists came together and formed a network of support for LGBT elders to ensure that LGBT older people could age with respect and dignity. That work continues and is growing today. SAGE is more than just an organization; it’s a movement of loving, caring activists dedicated to providing advocacy, services, and support to older members of the LGBT community. Our work is rooted in building welcoming communities and keeping our issues in the national conversation to ensure a fulfilling future for all LGBT people. In 2015 SAGE launched the National LGBT Elder Housing Initiative to address issues of housing discrimination experienced by older same sex couples. In 2017 SAGE was selected as the provider of social services for two new senior housing properties, Ingersoll Senior Residences in Brooklyn and Crotona Senior Residences in the Bronx, both scheduled to open in 2019.
