Explorative Art:

Mixed Media and you!

with Anne and Danielle from Antioch University.

This class is free for all LGBTQIA+ Older Adults, their caregivers, friends, family, and allies. Instructors are dedicated to providing guided therapeutic art workshops for those seeking community engagement, support, and creative exploration.

Beginning Oct 2 through Dec 4. Sign up for our next 10 week sessions of Explorative Art!

Healthy Cooking and Nutritional Education Classes

with Pots & Plans

Discover how to prepare quick, easy, nutritious and delicious meals and understand how to choose foods for various health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.


Ingredients are very budget friendly and each class includes a variety of recipes – including a Mix and Match recipe that lets you choose which ingredients to use. Each participant will go home with a free bag of groceries that includes the ingredients of the recipe from class.

Community Conversations

Our Community Conversations are LGBTQIA+ safe spaces by and for our community. While others are welcome to participate, our communities’ voices will be prioritized and we hold a judgement free, safe space for all members. Members are free to speak about any topic, however we do pre-selected topics each week that serve as great ice breakers.

Our Mission

Generations Aging with Pride empowers older LGBTQ+ adults to live with pride and dignity by promoting, connecting and developing innovative programs and services that enhance belonging and support, eliminate discrimination, and honor the lives of older members of our community. 

We are your community!
