Opening the Closet on Aging

The 50+ LGBTQ Empowerment Conference

The 2011 Opening the Closet on Aging conference was held November 28-29 at The 519 Church Street Community Centre. To kick off this year's conference we also hosted The 519 Older LGBT Movie Reel on Sunday November 27th, as well as the Conference Reception on Monday November 28th.

Over 200 people from across Canada participated in the events, including 50 presenters from a broad spectrum of fields and communities, numerous Toronto filmmakers and performance artists, nearly 30 volunteers predominantly from older LGBT communities, as well as a long list of attendees including older LGBT community members, service providers, academics, students, and general community members.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's conference so successful. We look forward to advocating alongside you for safe and positive space for older LGBTQ adults.
