Our Guest Speaker is Vincent Lachina – Seattle Multi-Faith
Works and outreach to the LGBT Community

The aging process is difficult for everyone, but for our Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual & Transgender (LGBT) seniors the perception of availability for resource and understanding amongst Senior Care providers can be very frustrating. In many cases resulting in forcing our LGBT Seniors to conceal who they are, often leading to a decrease in quality of life. It has become clear that there is a need for Healthcare providers who wish to outreach and care for LGBT Seniors to tighten their communication bridge, and work together to provide a better quality of care for the LGBT Seniors of Washington State.

We would like to thank Kristen Happe and the Team at Fred Lind Manor for hosting the March Meeting. We would also like to remind you that if you are interested in hosting a future meeting or have any questions about the March meeting, please let Tiffany Kopec know at (206)-714-6130 or on email at

Parking – There is available parking at The Polish Home parking lot located at 1714 18th Ave about ½ block away.

If you have already been attending the meetings, we encourage you to bring a guest or pass the information on to others!

This meeting is open to any and all that are interested!  Questions can be emailed to David Haack
