We asked: How can wellness and healthy living be advanced throughout a community?
The LGBT community has learned a great deal about wellness and healthy living as a result of the HIV/AIDS experience and having an increasingly vibrant and visible community of LGBT elders as the baby boom generation begins their golden years. We also have great resources after years of struggling to secure marriage and family rights. We can use these to help educate all our people about healthy lifestyles that are based on mindfulness and stress reduction, safe sexual practices, access to care for transgender individuals, women’s health and the special needs of families and seniors. We already know how to spread the word!
