Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) SIG


The AAG have formed a Special Interest Group (SIG) to address the unique and special needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) older Australians.

This SIG was formed in November 2012 as AAG members worked with the Government in developing the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Strategy. The group brings together expertise in LGBTI ageing from across the AAG’s membership and hosts forums to discuss and promote issues of ageing for LGBTI older people, with the aim of optimising the ageing experience for older people of diverse sexuality, sex and gender.

There is a members only online forum created by the LGBTI members. This online forum provides members an opportunity to share information, resources and events with others in this group.

Please note: When using the acronym LGBTI we are using the language that is known within the ageing and aged care sector. We recognise and acknowledge that there are people of diverse relationships, bodies,sexualities and genders that are not reflected within this acronym.
