Welcome to the GLBTI Rights in Ageing Inc (GRAI) website.
We are a Western Australian community-based group with a mission to create a responsive and inclusive mature age environment that promotes and supports a quality life for older and ageing people of diverse sexualities and gender identities.
We are a voluntary group that works actively in the policy and political environment and we would welcome your support and involvement.
