GRIOT Circle Inc

Log-in to Favorite

GRIOT (Gay Reunion In Our Time) Circle is a community based organization which seeks to address the needs of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, particularly people of color, though we are open to all races. Members of this community have been systematically overlooked and under served, and have had to endure discrimination and violence on at least four separate levels—on the basis of their sex, age, race, and sexual orientation. It is our mission to counteract these damaging conditions by maintaining a safe space for these Elders, alleviating their feelings of isolation and fear, and providing programs and support systems designed to affirm their lives and encourage self-empowerment.
