SUMMARY

To provide inclusive, affirming services, and welcoming health care to LGBT2SQ seniors, healthcare and social service providers should appreciate that not all seniors are heterosexual and cisgender. As they approach their twilight years, LGBT2SQ seniors are confronted with uncertainty about how to navigate health care and social services. Much of this uncertainty is because of historic stigmatization and discrimination towards LGBT2SQ communities, which has defined the lived experiences of many LGBT2SQ seniors. Understanding the impacts of LGBT2SQ lived experiences is essential to addressing the health and social service needs of LGBT2SQ seniors.Β
