9 Years Ago: November 2000
The Task Force's Policy Institute issued two new reports: a groundbreaking analysis of the lives of LGBT seniors called Outing Age, and Legislating Equality, a comprehensive study of laws addressing LGBT equality.

The Policy Institute will soon be releasing an updated version of Outing Age, so be on the lookout.

Here's how you can have your voice heard.
