LGBT People in Assisted Living Article

The [California] Ventura Star this week ran an article examining LGBT people in assisted living, an inquiry prompted by the airing of the documentary “Gen Silent” by the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging.

“We’ve learned the bullies who are there at the beginning of life are there at the end of life,” Stu Maddux, Gen Silent’s filmmaker, said during a talk-back session.  “This time, you can’t run and you can’t fight.”

The article  interviews LGBT residents, potential residents, and staff members, and is illustrated by several pictures of Beverly Taylor, 81, and Edie Brown, 77, who have been together for 37 years.  It’s available at http://www.vcstar.com/news/2013/jan/15/aging-gays-lesbians-find-challenges-in-assisted/
