GRAI is a Western Australian community-based group with a mission to create a responsive and inclusive mature age environment that promotes and supports a quality life for older and ageing people of diverse sexualities and gender identities.
We are a voluntary group that works to enhance the quality of life for GLBTI (gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans*, intersex) elders, focusing on improving GLBTI awareness in aged care services (both residential and community care). We also aim to promote healthy ageing and social inclusion for older GLBTI people through a range of events and projects.
We advocate for LGBTI elders' rights with governments; provide training in the aged care sector; and collaborate with researchers in order to increase the visibility and understanding of, and respect for GLBTI elders. Our work with the community aims to strengthen social connectivity through peer and intergenerational friendships.
