ElderPride – 55+ Gay Men’s Support Group
ElderPride is a weekly educational and support group for gay men, ages fifty-five and above, who are dealing with issues of aging in a youth-oriented culture. Come and learn about the principles of conscious aging and becoming a true elder. Develop your own vision for a vibrant, productive life during this time of transition. Increase your sense of self-worth as you connect with others who are also exploring this challenging and rewarding time of life.
This group is facilitated by Sandra Rogers, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with fourteen years of experience in delivering mental health services to the HIV/AIDS community in Los Angeles. She also specialized in working with gay men in her private practice there and conducted workshops on Conscious Coupling and Spirit and Flesh in the Learning Curve program at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center.
