1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Moon Palace Books | 3032 Minnehaha Ave Minneapolis, MN 55406

Join our friends at @rainbowhealthmn and @moonpalacebooks for this incredible event!

Given the societal taboos against discussing sexuality and older adults especially when it centers LGBTQ+ older adults, this workshop will offer a unique opportunity to apply current research and resources to your life as an aging LGBTQ+ adult.

The focus of this highly- engaging workshop is on debunking prevailing notions of LGBTQ+ elders’ sexuality, the impacts of aging on our sexual bodies, the challenges of HIV/AIDS, the difficulties in beginning a sexual relationship at a later age, the combination of sex and spirituality, and the possibilities of pleasure for LGBTQ+ older adults.

With frank discussion, humor, and hope, this workshop will offer participants ample opportunities to ask about sexuality and relationships as we age.

Brought to you by: U of M Eli Coleman Institute for Sexual and Gender Health, Rainbow Health, and Moon Palace Books. Email to register or for more information!
