The National LGBTI ageing and aged care strategy calls for LGBTI people to be at the centre of all policies and programs that affect their lives. It reminds us to ask: whose voices are privileged? This presentation will outline approaches undertaken by Val’s Café to draw on the expertise of older LGBTI people. It will also outline how this approach has documented evidence that is transforming our understanding of dementia, trans and intersex ageing, elder abuse, care giving and mental wellbeing.
