The LGBT Aging Project will be celebrating Pride in a big way this year. The organization has added a Tea Dance for LGBT seniors and friends to their calendar of events that will be held on Sunday, June 6 from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Whitney Ballroom of Broookline's Holiday Inn (1200 Beacon St.). More than 200 seniors from across the state are expected to attend. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or in advance beginning May 1.

In addition to the Tea Dance, the LGBT Aging Project will also be hosting a Pride Luncheon for LGBT seniors and friends -- a festive luncheon to help the community celebrate Pride Week on Thursday, June 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Café Emmanuel (Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury St.) in Boston. The suggested donation for the event is $1.75. Interested parties should RSVP by June 1 to Bob Linscott at (617) 522-1292.

As in years past, the LGBT Aging Project will also participate in the Boston Pride parade with their well-known (and well-loved) Senior Pride Trolley on Saturday, June 12 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. RSVP to reserve your spot by calling (617) 477-6695!
