Safe Housing for LGBT Older Adults

Research Request

A researcher from the University of Manitoba is conducting a study called "Safe and Inclusive Housing for LGBT Older Adults," and is looking for participants for her project.

The purpose of this study is to understand the experiences of LGBT* older adults living in congregate housing spaces by identifying barriers to feeling safe and included in those spaces, and also to identify what is currently being done that helps older LGBT* feel safe and included in those spaces.
The study is currently seeking participants to take part in a research project about the housing experiences of older LGBT* adults. By participating in the project you can provide valuable insight into what the experience of living in congregate housing spaces is like for older LGBT* adults and contribute to raising awareness among community organizations and policy makers:
To be eligible participants should:

  • Over the age of 55

  • Self-identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Genderqueer, Gender Nonconforming, or otherwise as non-heterosexual.

    Human rights museum seminars

    The University of Manitoba Centre for Human Rights Research is organizing a fall 2015 seminar series called The Idea of a Human Rights Museum, featuring University of Manitoba researchers and others from a range of disciplines. The seminars will explore topics such as: What are the missions of human rights museums around the world? What does it mean to “decolonize” a museum? How should and do museums deal with debate and dissent? How should museums deal with claims that works are stolen? What role do funders, especially governments, have in determining exhibit content? What is the message sent by museum architecture?

    Law and graduate students may participate for credit but the seminars are also open to the public.

    Seminars are usually on Mondays at 1 p.m. in Room 206, Robson Hall (Faculty of Law) on the Fort Garry campus. See the draft schedule.
