|Abstrakt EN:||The topics of sexuality and sexual identity have been largely neglected by the gerontological theories. In my paper I argue, that the invisibility of the topics of sexuality and ageing in a non-heterosexual context reinforce the heteronormativity that is embedded in the social services for older people. The paper explores how the perspective of intersectionality can help us to understand the experience of LGBT seniors. It identifies structural constraints and barriers that LGBT elders may face with respect to their experience of ageing and their access and approach to social services for seniors. The paper identifies best practices for creating environment that is supportive for LGBT elders.|
