Survey on aging for Michigan LGBTQ community

GRAND RAPIDS — Do you have members that are ages 50+ and identify as LGBTQ? Do they live in Western Michigan, Saginaw/Bay City/the Thumb, or the Upper Peninsula? Grand Rapids Pride Center and our partners’ at SAGE, Perceptions, UP Rainbow Pride, the ACLU of Michigan, and the Area Agencies on Aging in these regions want to hear from you.

Funded by a grant from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund, we are conducting a survey that aims to understand experiences of services and information for LGBT older adults in these regions as part of an effort to train service providers and identify LGBT-affirming older adult care services in these areas.

The survey can be found here:

It includes about 20 questions and should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

All results from this survey will remain confidential. No individually identifying information will be shared in any way. A report of the results will be shared by the project and all survey takers will receive a copy of the report upon request.

Thank you for taking the time to share this survey. The feedback is greatly appreciated and will help improve services for older LGBTQ people across the state.
