SpeakOut: Intersections of LGBTQ Identity and Agin

November 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

The LGBTQ Resource Center at the Gulfport Public Library hosts Dr. Milton Wendland and Ariana Drew on November 3 for their six-part SpeakOut series. This program will focus on the impact of the lack of culturally competent services on LGBTQ seniors’ lives and how these services can better meet the needs of LGBTQ elders.

Dr. Milton Wendland is a professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at University of South Florida. Ariana Drew is the Director of Clinical Services for Our Home Network.

SpeakOut examines the intersections between LGBTQ identity and aging, art, faith, law and literature, closing with a capstone session to tie together themes from the five topical discussions. SpeakOut is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Gulfport Public Library and the LGBTQ Resource Center. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.

This hybrid event is free to attend. Free parking is available at the Gulfport Public Library. Registration is required for Zoom attendees.
