GRAI - GLBTI Rights in Ageing Inc
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.
As with any organisation, we value feedback from anyone who visits our site so please check back here often for the latest in GLBTI retirement news and let us know if there’s something you want to see us include on our site.
