Rainbow Connections ATX

Rainbow Connections ATX (formerly, The LGBTQ Elder Task Force) spun off from the Coalition to work specifically on developing a SAGE Chapter in Austin, while the Coalition focused on local advocacy, diversity training, and housing guide, especially encouraging training and awareness of LGBT issues in existing Senior Services. Rainbow Connections ATX is now working with Family Eldercare.

Members of the original Steering Committee were inspired by newcomer-to-Austin, burlesque entertainer, talent agent, queer storyteller World Famous *BOB*, who had worked in SAGE’s New York offices. *BOB* moved to Austin with the intention of creating the same kinds of elder support programs that SAGE offers through becoming a local chapter. These are both worthy goals and the Coalition on Aging and Rainbow Connections ATX work together.
