"GenderDoc-M", the LGBT information centre in Cishinau, intends to shift the gear in the work with elderly gays. Since 2002 that LGBT organisation continues to organize parties and meetings for elderly gays and lesbians. Now the Moldavian branch of the Soros foundation joins this team and has already sponsored a recent "gay elder party".
It is well known that gays play more active sexual life irrespective of their age and issues of safe sex behaviour are still on the agenda for the people over 40 and 60+. That issue was the motto of an event organized by "GenderDoc-M" earlier this fall.
According to Mr.Alexey Marchkov, the chairman of the Moldavian LGBT organization, those meetings are attended usually by 20-25 people. There are about 70 elder gays in the members' list and those who are not able to attend these events in the LGBT information centre can enjoy the help of younger volunteers.
