LGBTi & DEMENTIA

EVERYBODY KNOWS MUSIC DOES MAGIC IN THOSE WITH DEMENTIA

BUT WHO PROVIDES THE LGBT ELDERLY PERSON LIVING WITH DEMENTIA THE MUSIC FOR THEM?

Probably no-one, therefor we need: A list with popular pride songs throughout the years and LGBT’ ers who will buddy up with LGBT elderly with dementia.

Why a list with pride songs through the years? Because the music we heard and listened due between the age of 15 & 25 is so deeply rooted in our brain that even dementia cannot destroy these music memories.

SO MAIL, APP, TWEET THE SONGS YOU KNOW WHERE POPULAR IN THE LGBT WORLD

For example: Don’t Leave Me This Way – The Communards 1986 – 1996. This is my life – Shirley Bassey – 1968 till 1980. Over the Rainbow – Judy Garland – 1930 till 1960.

Some songs were popular for just a year while other songs stay popular for a decade. Tell us, share you knowledge.

Together we can create a pride music list which makes it easy to bring pride happiness into the life of LGBT with dementia.

IF A SONG WAS ONLY POPULAR IN WALES, SCOTLAND, IRELAND OR ENGLAND TELL US

It makes the pride list stronger and better. I want to know the popular pride songs from 1940 till 1980. So that we don’t forget those with early onset dementia.

So give a shout out, ask around, tell everybody, share and RT if you know disc jockeys, producers, music connoisseurs ask them to help.

We can do! How more how better. If you should get dementia would you like to hear your pride music or would you be happy listen to the impersonal music the nurses likes??

LGBTQ SENIORS FACE DISCRIMINATION IN LONG-TERM CARE

Patrick Mizelle and Edwin Fisher, who have been together for 37 years, were planning to grow old in their home state of Georgia.

But visits to senior living communities left them worried that after decades of living openly, marching in pride parades and raising money for gay causes, they wouldn’t feel as free in their later years.

“I thought, ‘Have I come this far only to have to go back in the closet and pretend we are brothers?” said Mizelle. “We have always been out and we didn’t want to be stuck in a place where we couldn’t be. Read here the full article
