Advocating for LGBTQ+ adults over 50

“There’s a lack of advocacy and resources for the older LGBTQ+ adult population. Now is the time to help this community use their voice.”

– Heather Holmes, Founder

Our Mission

The mission of Owlish is to advocate for older LGBTQ+ adults through education, policy, and resource development. We serve anyone who identifies as part of the LGBTQ+ community and is over 50.

Older LGBTQ Adults Nebraska

The Challenge

Older LGBTQ+ adults in Nebraska are underrepresented. There is a gap in both resources and education. As much as 75% of older LGBTQ+ adults go back into the closet when moving into senior living facilities. These adults need support, community, representation, empowerment, and resources.

The Stonewall Social

A monthly social for LGBTQ+ adults over 50 at the Intercultural Senior Center

Join us every month for the Stonewall social, Omaha’s only meetup for older LGBTQ+ adults. Hosted by Owlish, the Stonewall Social is your opportunity to socialize in community, building amazing friendships, and learn more about the work Owlish is doing in Omaha. For more information on meeting times, dates, or other events, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re excited to hear from you.
