The Coalition marched in the PRIDE Parade 2023

“Thank you to all who came out to Austin PRIDE 2023. A BIG THANK YOU to our planning partners at Rainbow Connections ATX. Thank you to our sponsor, The Helper Bees. And Thank you to our partners who joined us in the parade; Alzheimer’s Association, Austin Public Library, Care Patrol, LBJ Library, Book Woman, AARP Texas, Agency on Aging Capital of Texas, Helper Bees, Taylor PRIDE, Austin PRIDE, AGE of Central Texas, and the office of Congressman Lloyd Dogget. 

This year we celebrated Austin’s LEGENDS of PRIDE, which we defined as someone actively involved in the Qmmunity of Central Texas that is TwoSpiritLGBTQIA+ and 60 or older. We are so honored to participate in this space and can’t wait to continue to grow and build on this platform. Make sure to follow up on Facebook for more pictures and up to date event information. ”

Our Goals

The first goal of the ALGBTCOA is to Strengthen Our Community by creating a coordinated LGBT community response, providing opportunities for people to congregate for social interaction, participating in the City’s intention of making Austin “age-friendly,” and encouraging informed participation in the decisions being made that affect us.

The second goal is to Encourage LGBT Sensitive Services by researching agencies regarding their knowledge and staff and caregiver training in these issues in order to find those that are sensitive to the LGBT concerns and to encourage others to provide training in our issues by making them aware of the need.

The Coalition hopes to be a partner and a resource for those serving the senior community, provide opportunities for active participation and involvement for those interested in aging issues, and be an educator and advocate for LGBT-friendly aging.
