AARP Celebrates National Pride Month with Debut of New
Online Home for Older LGBT Americans

WASHINGTON (June 6, 2011)—AARP today announced the launch of a new online Web portal—www.aarp.org/pride—dedicated to serving older lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans. The organization’s first online home base for the LGBT community reinforces the fact that pride comes in all ages for LGBT members, friends and loved ones. The site features articles on news, personal finance, relationships, travel and other topics of concern to older gay Americans, and their family and friends, as well as a community forum.

“We are proud to provide diverse, expert voices on topics that are important to all Americans 50+, including members of the LGBT community,” said Hugh Delehanty, SVP & Editor In Chief of AARP’s media properties. “AARP understands that while all Americans 50+ share the same goals of aging with dignity and peace of mind, each of the communities in our lives offers its own challenges, opportunities and contributions towards helping us get there. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate national Pride month than to launch this portal, which we hope will help members of the LGBT community and their loved ones get access to important information and relevant insights from experts and each other.”

The new www.aarp.org/pride portal offers targeted news, trivia quizzes and information on issues that especially matter to the LGBT community in areas including healthcare, retirement planning, caregiving, taxation, employment discrimination and more. Visitors can access AARP’s groundbreaking coverage of relevant topics, including an article from the latest issue of AARP The Magazine examining—three decades after the emergence of HIV/AIDS—–the new face of AIDS: people over 50. The portal also features AARP’s 20-part multimedia package, The Stonewall Riots: 40 Years Later, A Milestone Anniversary, which won accolades from the LGBT community and mainstream media for its comprehensive coverage of an important chapter in the American civil rights movement.
