CNPEA met with Anna Malkin (she/her) and Joyce Rankin (she/her) of onmyplanet (an expansion of shared stories and education through a Queer Story Archive, workshops and resources) to speak about their project - Generational Allies

Generational Allies is a two-year project which will lead to a series of workshops promoting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Trans, Asexual, Intersex, and Two-Spirit (LGBTQIA2S+) inclusion and allyship practices in older adult communities. Recorded interviews, retracing personal experiences and stories from LGBQT2SI+  older adults (55+), will form the basis of the workshop discussions. The workshops will be facilitated by LGBQT2SI+ older adults, and hosted by organizations that provide services to older adults.
