Are you finding club music too loud and too fast? Does it seem far too long since you saw old friends, or met new ones near your own age? You may be looking for a group like the Elderberries. The initiative behind this group comes from the Nova Scotia Rainbow Action Project's Elders Committee, and the Group’s objective is to provide a social get-together for LGBT people aged 50-plus while at the same time giving the group information and support on subjects specifically related to LGBT Elder issues.
