Each year, SAGE of PROMO Fund recognizes an LGBT older adult who has made significant impact within the movement for LGBT equality. Awardees are notable for their vision for our community’s future and have demonstrated this vision through service, activism, and community building.
Do you know an exceptional LGBT older adult in Missouri who you want to uplift and publicly recognize? Nominate them for the annual Hostetler award by July 30th!
All nominees should:
- Live in Missouri
- Demonstrate a meaningful contribution to the LGBT+ community, including their fellow older adults, through their life’s work, volunteer activities, or community building efforts.
Note: Preference is given to LGBT community members age 55 and up; however, nominations of allies and/or people across the age spectrum will also be considered.
The awardee will be recognized at the annual SAGE Summer Celebration on Saturday, September 18th!
Note that if it is safe to gather in person, the event will take place in St. Louis, Missouri. All travel expenses for the awardee and a limited number of guests will be provided. If it is deemed unsafe to hold the event in person, the event will take place virtually. SAGE of PROMO Fund is closely monitoring COVID-19 conditions and will make the determination closer to the event date.
