This is a short clip from a recent segment of In the Life. The segment, entitled Aging in a Safe Environment, was directed by Michael Jacoby and features music by Soren Sorensen.
According to The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, over 3 million LBGT people are over age 65. While seniors are protected against age-based discrimination by The Older Americans Act, the lack of LGBT specific protections can drive our pioneers back into the closet when entering long-term care facilities. Disturbed by this trend, some activists and visionaries have taken matters into their own hands by creating safe spaces for our elders.
In The Life Media produces change through innovative media that exposes social injustice by chronicling lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender life and providing their audiences with effective ways to advance equality within and beyond our communities.
