SAGE Utah, the Utah Pride Center’s group for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people age 50 and over, and their loved ones, will hold a number of events throughout November and December.
On Nov. 8, SAGE will partner with the Utah Pride Center and the Salt Lake Film Center for a screening of Hannah Free at the Tower Theatre, 876 E. 900 South. This award-winning 2009 film follows the love story of two women nearing the end of their lives through such past turmoil as a war, infidelity and unaccepting families. The screening will start at 7 p.m.
The Center will give HIV tests for members of the community age 50 and over on Nov. 17 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the building’s Middle Meeting Room. Although the majority of HIV/AIDS cases occur in younger individuals, older individuals are still at risk for contracting the virus and many, the Center has noted, may not know their HIV status.
For their December service project, SAGE members will create care baskets for Utahns living with HIV/AIDS. Dinner will be provided and participants are asked to bring donations for the baskets. The project will be held Dec. 15 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
This fall, SAGE will also hold a social hour every third Tuesday at the Tenth East Senior Center, 237 S. 1000 East.
