Baltimore, May 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Celebrate an LGBT elder who made a difference in your life, and spread the word about the importance of LGBT older adults in your community tomorrow, May 16, on National Our LGBT Elders Day.

There are an estimated 3 million LGBT adults over the age of 55 throughout the U.S.
"It's important to celebrate elders every day," said Sam McClure, director of the LGBT Health Resource Center of Chase Brexton Health Care, which inaugurated the national day of recognition in Baltmore in 2016. "Respect for those with more experience is an essential element of civility. In intergenerational dialogues, we discover we have differing opinions based on our experiences and perspectives. I love seeing Elders and youth learning from each other."
