Our Training

GenPride has updated, reformatted and converted our presentations and trainings to take advantage of common online platforms. All online presentations are no longer than 90 minutes, and your session can be stretched to 2 hours to accommodate 30 minutes for Q&A.


We believe this collaborative, interactive experience can bring understanding and openness towards a more inclusive experience for Rainbow Elders and the broader LGBTQIA+ community in your environs and emphasize the resources and services we can provide upon your request or referral.

Senior Centers and Health Services

Elder Living Facilities and Housing Providers

Organizations and Corporations

Geared for understanding LGBTQIA+ history and legacy as it related to our Rainbow elders, the challenges, obstacles and victories our elders face, cultural language (transgender and nonbinary concepts highlighted), respectful interactions, and practical steps toward navigating and implementing more inclusive and equitable changes within your organization/facility/agency/services.

Everyone seeks love and belonging on the way to connection–we are wired for it. Our LGBTQIA+ (Rainbow) Elders we are no different. Isolation is the most often reported concern for most elders. Having survived decades of discrimination and the trauma inherent in being in a marginalized and often invisible community, our elders have some unique hurdles to overcome. Our resiliency is phenomenal.

A core learning piece elucidates historical inequities and discrimination they faced when deciding how, when, and with whom it was safe to come out. Each session highlights 1-4 speakers and this foundational, core learning piece to anchor their stories and learn more about the ways our Rainbow Elders have survived and are thriving.
