Monday 9am on Charlotte Talks 90.7 WFAE – Gay and Gray
The Baby Boomer generation is aging and we have kept an eye on some of the issues confronting those in the twilight of their lives here on Charlotte Talks. However, one large set of elderly folks have unique issues to manage. Gay and lesbian couples are aging in a country divided about same sex couples and that sentiment affects their retirement choices, executor status for their wills, end-of-life issues and more. We look at the challenges for those who are gay and gray.
