The purpose of this collaborative community project is to develop a digitized and publicly accessible archive of the various contributions made by diverse populations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) seniors living in Nova Scotia.

This 2-year project, starting in April, 2019, is in keeping with the “SHIFT: Nova Scotia’s Action Plan for an Aging Population” document in that it will help build capacity among older adults and the broader community to connect and coalesce in the development of an archive aimed at raising awareness and appreciation of the social, economic and other contributions from ethno-culturally, linguistically, and geographically diverse members of our older LGBT communities across Nova Scotia.

This province-wide project will provide a platform to both increase social interaction and community involvement among older populations and will also create a living legacy through the collaborative development of an open, accessible, province-wide digital archive for use by community members, seniors, older and younger generations of LGBT populations, researchers and students, the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors, among others.
