IN the wake of the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Conference in Melbourne last week, the latest Victorian Election Meet the Candidates video from the Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, Pride TV and Star Observer looks at older LGBTI people.

VGLRL co-convener Corey Irlam asked how the candidates’ parties would support older LGBTI people, with responses from Labor’s Martin Foley, the Sex Party’s Fiona Patten, the Greens’ Sam Hibbins, and the Liberal’s Shannon Eeles.
