Is it harder to age as a LGBTI person? What scares you about ageing?

Many people fear ageing, especially as a lot of people believe the gay scene is ageist.

Whether it’s finding a few more grey hairs or worrying about your finances, older age brings up a lot of fears.

That is why we have created a big survey asking our audience about getting older as a LGBTI person.

Whatever age you are, we want to know how you feel. We’re hoping to create a picture of what our community feels about ageing. If you’re a teen, a senior, or anywhere in between, we want to hear your voice.

Gay Star News is working with organisations and individuals dedicated to helping improve the future of older LGBTI people. We will be sharing the results with them, and publishing them, to ensure the information you share influences the right people.

More about our survey

We have set up our survey to ask you relevant questions. So the information you provide at the beginning determines what else we ask you. That makes it quicker and more interesting to complete. We expect it to take no more than five minutes to finish.

We try to make our surveys engaging and thought-provoking so they are enjoyable to do. As always, we welcome your feedback on the questions we ask and the way we ask them. It will help us improve our research in future.

We will keep all responses totally anonymous. And we will keep your data secure and confidential. If you kindly provide your email to subscribe to our newsletter or to hear about future surveys, only Gay Star News will contact you, nobody else.

Numbers count – so please share the survey with anyone you think may be interested in helping.

We are really aware our survey is online, and that’s not accessible to all older LGBTI people. So if you can help a friend or family member complete it, we would be particularly grateful.

More about being an older LGBTI person

For Digital Pride, we worked with Age UK to bring older and younger LGBTI people together to share their stories and experiences. You can find out more about the project here.
