Here's a trailer I ran across, from 2010. I'm involved in the care of many elderly folks - many in their 80s and 90s, one is 100 and several are close to 100. I don't know a single one who identifies as LGBT. I know a few LGBT folks in their 60s and 70s. The trailer points out that LGBT people often don't have families who care for them, but some do. The truth is, many straight people don't either. Churches and church-based nursing homes are sources of comfort and community. I walked a fine line in my mother's nursing home, which was religious based. I could not transport her the 2000 miles to my house, and she refused when younger and more able. So I tolerated the Jesus portraits and chapel and chaplains' parasitism. My nightmare: being prayed over, being forced to eat meat, having religion forced on me. I've been an understanding, secure, and supportive partner to my partner - I hope he doesn't dump me when I'm old. Sometimes I think about when I'm old, I'll my house into an LGBT foster home for the elderly. It's a long way away, and no one likes to think about aging - neither straight or LGBT people - but it's pat of life. For those who are already there, they deserve better.

AnneT thank you for the link.  It's moving to see the human faces of the people affected by the inhumane ballot measure, where people will be voting for or, I expect more likely against, human rights, in North Carolina.

"Well, some people like being pissed on."

I've met one.

That was one weird-ass night I'd not care to repeat in a hurry....

The hope of the COMMITMENT | NC documentary project is that by discovering the stories and struggles of same-sex couples and others with real love and commitment to each other, North Carolinians will in turn vote to commit our state to protecting equal rights for all under the law, which is the function of all constitutions.

Will check it out. One final thing I learned about most of them,(our ancestors), the ones with a codified pantheon of dieties, is that they were all considered, to one extent or another, a reflection, an avatar, a manifestation of the primary god/goddess. Kinda like a roundabout form of monotheism. One primary, with many subsequent "flavors", depending on your needs at the time. And since all were a projection of the human psyche, all forms of life needed its own avatar. Very interesting. Stuff like this really helps one understand humanity at large. Guess that's why it always fascinated me. Anyhoo, be well, my friend. Until later, peace.
