SAGE, the largest advocacy organization for LGBTQ older people since 1978, has celebrated the launch of a new community center for LGBTQ seniors in the Bronx. SAGE USA, joined by local advocates, community members, and city officials, held a grand opening ceremony on Sept. 27 for its newest location – SAGE Center Bronx at Crotona Pride House. The ceremony also celebrated the launch of a new mural with the center from Karen “KayLove” Pedrosa, a queer, Bronx native artist born to Puerto Rican immigrants. The vibrant colors and graffiti are intentional for Pedrosa to “have elements of the Caribbean, South America, and Central America” while celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, according to an interview with Gay City News. The center is designed to provide a safe space for LGBTQ older people with activities that reflect their cultural diversity while building their social and technical skills. The space includes program rooms, lounge areas, green space and a terrace, along with free or low-cost meals, daily cultural events, and financial services to LGBTQ individuals over the age of 50.
