Aging in America can be filled with uncertainty, and it is particularly challenging for LGBT older adults, who face unique issues stemming from stigma, isolation, and discrimination. Today, SAGE, MAP and the Open to All coalition released Nursing Home, the latest in a series of ads illustrating the devastating harms many LGBT Americans face because have no legal protection from discrimination.
