Calling All Seniors- Share YOUR Story!


Calling All LGBT Seniors!

From Stonewall to today, our LGBT community has grown in ways that many of us may have never imagined and as LGBT seniors, you’ve seen it all!

You have a unique story to add to our rich LGBT culture, and we want to hear it!

Read below to learn how you can participate in The LOFT's Creative Aging Memoir Writing Program this summer!


In honor of The LOFT's 35th anniversary, we invite you to share a piece of your personal history to kick off The LOFT’s 35 for 35 Project: Showcasing 35 Stories for 35 Years.

This summer, The LOFT is offering a memoir writing course specifically for LGBT seniors, taught by LOFT Writers Workshop co-leader and SUNY Orange Creative Writing Professor, Steven Shaw.

This program will consist of eight, 90 minute sessions, and will run throughout the months of June and July at The LOFT. We will be collecting from those interested their preferred days and times to meet. A final community-wide event to showcase the class’ work will be scheduled in August.

This program is completely free and open to all skill levels.


Advanced registration is required. If you are interested in participating or would like to learn more, please contact Shepard Verbas at or (914) 948-2932 x13.

Everyone has a story to tell. Learn how to share yours!

This program is part of Lifetime Arts’ Creative Aging in Westchester County initiative and was made possible with the support of The Westchester Community Foundation.
