Metro LGBT Centers celebrate the unique culture and needs of the older LGBT community through our SAGE Tampa Bay programs. Having faced decades of discrimination and fought for LGBT rights, LGBT older adults are among the pillars of our community. Metro works diligently to provide programming for LGBT older adults by offering social, legal, health and wellness programs.
