Interfacing with older LGBT citizens Two-day Masterclass

Posted on 17. Feb, 2013 by in Uncategorized

 Interfacing with older LGBT citizens and

Challenging Discrimination

Wed 17 April and Thurs 18 April

9:30 am to 15:30 pm


Who should attend:

Representatives from both statutory and voluntary groups are invited to Bournemouth for two days—to learn about our research, view the award-winning film, Rufus Stone, and take part in exercises drawn from the Method Deck-Methods to Diversity, a learning tool to inspire agencies, practitioners and communities to think about diversity within their ageing population. The two days will feature stimulating activities and informal discussions, the potential damage of discrimination experienced by many older gay and lesbian citizens, and what can be done about it.

What you will gain by attending:

Participants will go away from the two days of activities with new knowledge about growing older as gay or lesbian. They then will be equipped to return to their groups with training in organising their own meaningful exercises around interfacing with older gay and lesbian citizens in their organisations and reducing discrimination in their communities.

Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the Method Deck – Methods to Diversity and a DVD of the award-winning film, Rufus Stone, upon completion of the two-day training.


Costs: The cost of the Masterclass is covered by Bournemouth University, including lunches and refreshments.  Travel expenses and accommodation will not be reimbursed. 

Please insure that you will be able to attend for the full two days before registering for the event. Places are limited to 25 participants only.
