Looking ahead to next week:

The PNA Village presents “Creating a Safe Space for the Aging LGBTQ Community” from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2, at the Phinney Center, in the Blue Building.

Aging brings new challenges, and people who are aging as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender sometimes face added challenges given the prejudices that still exist in our society.

Please join us for this panel presentation and discussion to learn more about those challenges and what we can do and say to be sensitive, helpful, and affirming to the LGBT members of our community.

Panel members include representatives from PFLAG, the Village, and the NW LGBT Care Providers Network.

Light refreshments will be provided.
