SAGE Story: A Veteran's Contribution in L.A.
May 23, 2013 10:32 AM PDT
For the past three years, the LA Gay and Lesbian Center has worked closely with the Los Angeles Regional Office of the Veterans Health Administration and Veterans Benefits Administration to provide cultural competency training to their staff and connect LGBT older adults with military programs and services at the VA. As a result of their groundbreaking work, an 88-year old WWII veteran finally got the help he needed—68 years after he served his country bravely and honorably. Kathleen Sullivan, Director of Seniors Services at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center shares this remarkable story with us in recognition of the contributions of LGBT veterans.

March 22, 2013 06:27 AM PDT
Evie, a SAGE constituent, tells the story of coming out and her parents - who survived the Holocaust. "The key message of my childhood-from the day I was born-was that what Hitler did to the Jews, could be done to anybody and I had an obligation to be socially aware of every body in my life. So it came as a shock to me-after having been taught that-at age 23 when I would come out to my mother, she spit on the floor and said 'if Hitler didn't kill me, you will'...It's been 40 years since I came out, and there has been little tolerance in my family about me coming out and the very lesson they ingrained in me, they could not do themselves."SAGE Story: Eleanor Smith
