LGBTQ+ elders honored under new bill

New legislation hopes to further honor elders in the LGBTQ+ community. Governor JB Pritzker, D-Illinois, signed Senate Bill 3490 into law, on National Honor Your LGBTQ Elders Day. The day is meant to honor and recognizes older LGBTQ individuals who fought for equality and led the movement for equality. The bill amends the Illinois Act on Aging to designate specific protections and services for older LGBTQ adults.
