SAGE, the nation's largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT elders, is proudly commemorating its 40th anniversary at this year's SAGE Awards & Gala on October 15 at Cipriani Wall Street. That evening, SAGE will honor actor and activist George Takei, the Speaker of the New York City Council Corey Johnson, Kate Kendell of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Wells Fargo's John Lake.

"2018 is a very special year for SAGE as we celebrate 40 fierce years of creating a better world for our community's pioneers," said SAGE CEO Michael Adams. "Anniversaries always are an important moment to remind ourselves of the road we've traveled so far, who led us, and where we need to be going. At SAGE we stand on the shoulders of our elders and we lock arms with them to face the future. We refuse to be quiet, we refuse to let hatred win, and we refuse to be invisible. This year's SAGE Awards honorees show us, by their vivid example, what it takes to build a better and more just world for our elders and for all of us."

The event will be co-chaired by Larry Chanen, Lisa Davis, Char Defrancesco, and Dawn Fischer.

"I've learned so much from our LGBT pioneers by volunteering with SAGE. I am proud to continue my service by co-chairing this monumental event celebrating SAGE's 40 years," says Char Defrancesco. "SAGE allows our elders to age with the dignity and respect they deserve."

WHAT: Please join us at the annual SAGE Awards & Gala, as we recognize our distinguished honorees, and celebrate 40 fierce years of SAGE's work to create a better world for LGBT elder pioneers.
