Boston City Council is scheduled to hold a hearing "to support Boston's growing senior LGBT community" on Tuesday, July 16.

City Councilor (and mayoral candidate) Michael P. Ross called the hearing.

In Ross's order, he notes that many LGBT seniors, "Now, having entered later years of their life, many are entering into assisted living or nursing home facilities … As a result, many LGBT elders find themselves reverting to hiding their sexuality from their peers."

The LGBT Aging Project, a Massachusetts-based organization that advocates for LGBT seniors, is calling on local LGBT seniors and their friends to "fill the chamber" next Tuesday.

Mike Ross's order is below.
