Aging with Pride, our weekly (Thursdays 11 am to noon) conversation group, is now 6 months old and thriving. Our meetings to date have been via ZOOM but we hope pandemic rules will permit us to add an in-person component at Sage (15 Sir Winston Churchill Square) in May or June. We will retain the online component so that both speakers and audience will be able to choose the format which best suits them.
We have an exciting lineup of confirmed presenters. On April 7 Liz Massiah and Michael Phair will have a conversation about community building followed on April 14 by two speakers from Saskatoon who will outline their initiatives for GLBTQ2S+ seniors in Saskatchewan. The final two presentations that month will address important legal documents for seniors with lawyer Erin Lafuente (April 21) and elder abuse with an expert from Sage (April 28).
