AARP Radio Goes Gay

I’ll admit it. I listen to NPR way too much.

While I was driving around running errands, I heard an interesting segment on AARP’s “Primetime Radio.”

They were interviewing Frederick Hertz, author of the recently published Making it Legal: A Guide to Same-Sex Marriage, Domestic Partnership & Civil Unions. Not only did he discuss the state of gay marriage and civil unions in America, but he also addressed issues important to aging LGBTQ individuals. Everything was presented in a fair and non-judgmental way.

The gay rights movement, at least from my limited vantage point, often forgets that gay people span all ages. We forget that our grandmothers may be facing discrimination in the nursing home. While this particular segment is not yet available online (or at least I couldn’t find it), I hope it will be uploaded soon.

AARP, thank you for approaching topics that both the aging community and the gay community sometimes forget about.
