Cedric_Burgess_insert_1_c_Washington_Blade_by_Michael_KeyNeed some facts, stories or anecdotes on what it’s like to be poor, old, and LGBT?

Check out the Washington Blade’s 2-part Special Report on the topic.

“You can’t let adversity get you down,” at http://www.washingtonblade.com/2014/03/20/special-report-cant-let-adversity-get/, includes statistics on LGBT elders and poverty, along with several stories.

“In their own words: elders facing poverty, ageism,” at http://www.washingtonblade.com/2014/03/27/special-report-words-elders-facing-poverty-ageism/, focuses more on the details, such as this:  “A little peanut butter, maybe some pizza or Ramen noodles is a typical meal for Robyn Sullivan, a 57-year-old transgender woman living in New York City, who struggles to pull together $25 a week for food.”
