LGBT aging facts

Reports estimate that there are around 3 million LGBT adults over age 50, and that number is expected to grow to around 7 million by 2030. LGBT older people face unique challenges as they age. LGBT elders are:

  • Twice as likely to be single and live alone
  • Four times less likely to have children
  • Far more likely to have faced discrimination and social stigma
  • More likely, therefore, to face poverty and homelessness, and to have poor health

But even as LGBT elders face these challenges, they are resilient. LGBT older people are living vibrant, full lives across the U.S. and around the world.
