About the LGBTQ 50+ Alliance
Formerly called the LGBT Senior Alliance, the LGBTQ 50+ Alliance is committed to connecting LGBTQ adults with programs and services in our community.
The LGBTQ 50+ Alliance is sponsored by OutReach LGBTQ+ Community Center and the Madison Senior Center.
Its purpose is to create a better quality of life for LGBTQ+ older adults by building partnerships with senior service providers and providing intergenerational social opportunities.
To develop and promote events and activities for LGBTQ adults age 50+, their friends, families, and allies, providing advocacy and reducing isolation.
Our vision is to have fun, educate, and advocate for LGBTQ 50+ adults.
