Silver Rainbow – Let older LGBTI people shine

On 1 October 2015, we will celebrate the 25th annual UN International Day of Older Persons.


Leading up to 1 October, ILGA-Europe will be running ‘Silver Rainbow’ – a social media campaign to highlight life experiences of older LGBTI people.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of the specific needs of older LGBTI persons and to share the best resources on the topic.

  • How you can support Silver Rainbow:

We will be sharing videos, an animation, an infographic and lots of resources (from members and partners) on our website, through Facebook and via Twitter.

We would love you to get involved by sharing our posts, commenting on Facebook or chatting to us on Twitter using the hashtag #SilverRainbow
