Guest Biography: 

Bob Linscott is assistant director of the Boston-based lgbt aging project. In that position, he works to make certain that aging people with alternative life styles have an opportunity to enjoy as much support as anybody else might. He also works to bring together intergenerational groups. That can become quite a challenge considering the vast social changes that have occurred in the past few decades. At one point, gays, lesbians and others were obligef to hide their identities. Now, young children claim, for example, that they are girls even though they have been designated as being boys.
