The Face of LGBT Aging

Based on estimates from US Census data obtained in 2000 for the Western New York region, there are 25,407 lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals aged 55 years or more who call our region home. With the aging of the “baby boomer” generation, the percentage of seniors in the national population is expected to swell, and the national population of LGBT people over age 65 may grow to 4.7 million in coming years.
