Gay and Lesbian Elders Active in Minnesota
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.
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.
