/EIN News/ -- Baltimore, MD, May 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The challenges, struggles and triumphs of older LGBT adults will be commemorated on Thursday, May 16 during National Honor Our LGBT Elders Day.

The day of recognition will pay tribute to the sacrifices and successes of LGBT older adults and thank them for leading the fight to expand LGBT rights. There are an estimated 3 million LGBT adults over the age of 55 throughout the U.S.

“In these times of uncertainty and change, the lessons we can learn from our LGBT elders are more important than ever,” said Monte Ephraim, Manager of LGBT Older Adult Programming at The LGBT Health Resource Center. “There is no better time to listen to their stories, learn from their experiences, and let them know the enormous impact they have had on all our lives than on May 16.”
