QMUNITY’s Older Adults and Seniors programs offer opportunities for community connection, social support, and personal development for folks fifty-five and older.

Finding inclusion, belonging, and meaningful connections can become more challenging as we age. That’s why QMUNITY hosts social events, co-develop and provide educational workshops, assists in one-to-one support and referral services, while fostering connections within diverse communities to improve the lives of 2SLGBTQIA+ persons 55 years and older.

We acknowledge the lived experience of Older Adult and Senior members of our community and seek to hold space for those members to be supported in connecting, supporting, and leading one another and the community at large.

Older Adults & Seniors Newsletter

The Older Adults and Seniors newsletter is typically distributed digitally and in hard-copy in the second week of each calendar month.  The newsletter:

  1. Provides information about QMUNITY in the coming month. This section includes details that are more specific to Older Adult and Senior members with QMUNITY programs than the general newsletter.
  2. Shares a sampling of events happening at other inclusive community spaces.
  3. Relays information about upcoming projects in the community for older adults and seniors looking to share their experiences, expertise, and talents as contributors, co-developers, and influencers.

Our goals is to communicate in a way that keeps as many folks as possible in-the-loop, up-to-speed, and able to participate in what is happening for 2SLGBTQAI+ communities.
