This year, the West End Seniors’ Network was proud to present, in conjunction with Qmunity Generations, Haro Park Centre, 411 Seniors Centre Society, and the South Granville Seniors Centre, the 5th Annual Aging with Pride, hosted by the Coast Plaza Hotel. It was an opportunity for LGBTQ2+ seniors to celebrate pride in a safe and accessible indoor venue. Seniors from all walks of life came forward and expressed their sentiments during the Vancouver Pride Week celebration.
“”I came on down because I, as a person who’s aging, really wanted to plug into and honour the community that I know exists out there, of elders of lesbian and gay and transgender and queer elders,” said Ginger Mason, 60, who recently retired.”
With numerous activities, entertainment, and prizes to be won, it was a great success.
