Gay and Lesbian Elders Active in Minnesota 

Our Mission  
Founded in 1989, G.L.E.A.M. (Gay and Lesbian Elders Active in 
Minnesota) was established to provide a friendly and safe 
environment in which older Gays and Lesbians, together, could meet 
and socialize. By providing on-going opportunities through joint 
programs, it is our goal to enhance the quality of life for many of our 
communities' isolated elders.

Why G.L.E.A.M.?

Being an older Gay or Lesbian means something different to each 
one of us. At G.L.E.A.M., we want it to mean being active in a 
friendly, open social environment. A place where the promise of 
new friendships can bloom and old acquaintances can be renewed. 
A place of dignity where the warmth of our community 
comes to spend a Sunday afternoon.
In February, 1989, G.L.E.A.M. founders set out to make their vision 
of such a place a reality. They recognized that Gays and Lesbians 
over forty have their own concerns. G.L.E.A.M. seeks to be an 
important element in the expression of those concerns. 

Put G.L.E.A.M. in Your Life 

We invite you to come and enjoy the friendly, lively gatherings of 
G.L.E.A.M. In addition to our regular Sunday socials, we also host 
special events, including brunches and potlucks.
