The Aging Gayfully exhibition was produced as part of the Aging Gayfully program.
All the photographs used, with the exception of those bearing the mention "stock photo", were taken by Fondation Émergence to promote the visibility of LGBT seniors. In fact, while LGBT people represent about 10% of the population, among seniors they remain largely invisible in representations.
This exhibition aims to reach seniors more directly through a traveling exhibition that is be available upon request from seniors' institutions.
