This session will follow the showing of the film “Gen Silent”. This award-winning documentary, which attendees are encouraged to view during lunch if they have not seen previously, helps to share the historical backdrop with the current realities of aging through the real-life examples of six individuals. It is an excellent way to highlight the complex decisions that need to be made in older years. The film focuses on the many experiences and challenges they face through the aging process including the health care barriers they have faced throughout their lives as LGBTQ individuals and how these have impacted how they approach the decisions that confront them in late life. During this session, the film's creators and producers, Stu Maddux and Joe Applebaum, will be joined by several of the subjects who were highlighted in the film. Together, with session moderators, they will review and discuss what we have learned in the decade since the film was produced-what is different, what is the same, what are the needs and work to identify ways for open discussions to positively impact health care services for the aging LGBTQ aging population.
