Quam, Jean K.; Whitford, Gary S.
Gerontologist, v32 n3 p367-74 Jun 1992
Respondents in a study of lesbian women and gay men over age 50 who indicated high levels of involvement in the gay community reported acceptance of the aging process and high levels of life satisfaction, despite predictable problems associated with aging and sexual orientation. Being active in the gay community was an asset to accepting one's aging. (Author/ABL)
