GenPRIDE proudly offers our senior and aging LGBTQIA+ community free events! We welcome you to bring your friends, families, significant others, or allies to celebrate intersectionality and multi-generational safe spaces. Our roster of events includes recurring classes, one time workshops with professionals and community leaders, and partner with many local organizations to bring fun events that enhance social connection and support.
While all our classes are drop in, we do ask folks to RSVP if they can. That way we can always plan for enough materials, seating, or snacks.

Understanding Alzheimer’s & Dementia

1620 – 12th Ave Pike/Pine Room Seattle, WA 98122

Alzheimer’s is not typical when aging, nor is it just being forgetful. It’s a disease of the brain that causes progressive problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Many elders do not have to face Alzheimer’s or other memory issues as they age. But for those who do, it can be a disruptive and challenging disease, causing significant impacts and life changes.
Recent research has provided new ways to slow down the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and shed new light on how to improve the quality of life for both people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Your loved one does not have to be “lost” to this disease or isolated from their community.
Come to this free, informative talk to learn more about:
» The impact of Alzheimer’s
» The difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia
» Alzheimer’s disease stages and risk factors
» Current research & treatments to address some symptoms
» Local resources to assist people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers
Signing Party for Wills & Other Legal Documents
February 12, from 6 – 7:30 pm
Are you creating or updating a Will, Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, or another legal document that needs witnessing and/or notarizing? Sometimes the stumbling block is finding a Notary Public and/or witnesses all in one place for your signing of the document.
Come to a free, fun document signing party at GenPRIDE! Bring your photo ID and your legal documents as ready-to-sign, printed copies. We’ll have a Notary Public in attendance and can witness each other’s signing of our documents, so you can leave with your documents all signed, legal and official.
In April, GenPRIDE began working with members of our aging LGBTQ Community to develop and share their stories.
