November 2011 – Out & About
Live, Love, Laugh,

In preparation for 2012’s “European Year of Active Aging”, LGBT Diversity invites you to join us in exploring ways to ensure that older LGBT people have the best possible opportunities for living a positive and active life.

To that end, LGBT Diversity’s third regional seminar for the south east will be held on Wednesday, 9th November 2011, in Langton’s Hotel in Kilkenny, and aims to:

  • Raise awareness of the needs of Ireland’s older LGBT population.
  • Facilitate a discussion of what can be done to ensure that older LGBT people have the best possible opportunities for living a positive and active life.
  • Support networking and information sharing.

To promote and celebrate wonderful LGBT Parents from all around Ireland a fabulous competition is being held in Dignity, John Street, Waterford hosted by Charmin on the 11th of November at 9.00pm.

If you would like further information or would like to speak to someone contact Kevin on 086 720 0634 alternatively via email, Facebook and twitter.
