NW LGBT Senior Care Network is nonprofit that advocates for the need of the LGBT community as it ages and seeks to make sure that services are available that are respectful, aware, and inclusive. Our website is intended to be a resource for the community and list of service providers who are committed to non-discrimination and inclusion.
Jamie Clausen has been a LGBT rights activist since 1995 when she founding the University of Washington's first straight alliance group for LGBT rights "Friends of Pride Dawgs" and served as media relations director for the successful movement to have the University of Washington become the first major University in the United States to provide domestic partnership rights to students. She is excited to be working with the Network to advocate for an often ignored portion of the LGBT community in this important way. Too often LGBT seniors are denied services or forced back into the closet because of a lack of awareness of available resources. It is a situation that must change.
