Health and human services providers do not typically address sexual orientation and/or gender identity when working with older adults. An articulation of key challenges, competencies, and strategies that includes an understanding of historical forces can provide a framework for a path of action that addresses the growing needs of today’s (and tomorrow’s) LGBT older adults, their families, and their communities
