Section 186 of Chapter 38 of the Acts of 2013 has created the LGBT Aging Commission.

The Commission will be hosting Nancy Knauer, I. Herman Stern Professor of Law and Director of Law & Public Policy Programs at Temple University, an internationally recognized scholar writing in the areas of identity, sexuality and gender to speak with commission members about advocating for LGBT seniors and legal issues for LGBT seniors.
