Betty White’s commercials for AARP proclaiming that people need to “Get Over It” have taken on a whole new meaning with the launch of its new online Web portal dedicated to older lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender Americans. Proving that “pride comes in all ages,” the bold new site features articles, current news, polls, quizzes, videos and other useful resources for older gay Americans (age 50 plus according to AARP) and their friends, family and allies.
I did a quick perusal of the portal and found several attention-grabbing articles including “The Gay Man's Guide to Dating After 50," “5 LGBT-Friendly Vacations,” “My Child Is Gay. Now What?,” “Educating Older Adults About HIV/AIDS” and “Defying the Macho Culture.” Oprah, eat your heart out.
