Champions of Change
George Stewart, 80 years old, is a former Army clerk and U.S. Air Force court reporter. He currently lives in Harlem, New York, and is an integral part of the community – singing in church show choirs and volunteering at the Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) Harlem office. In the past year, George has donated his time and face to SAGE – illustrating that you don’t have to stop being active when you get older. A featured speaker at the opening of the country’s first innovative LGBT senior center – The SAGE Center – George spoke on behalf of thousands of New York City LGBT elders who need the programs, services and advocacy that SAGE provides.
