Abstract

This special issue focuses on care in late life and at the end of life for people with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, from an international perspective. There is a growing body of research demonstrating that LGBT people are a diverse and under-researched new ageing population, but less attention has been paid to the specific issues connected to care in late life and at the end of life. This Special Issue makes a contribution to that aim, with papers from South Africa, Lebanon, Hong Kong, Canada, US, UK, Netherlands and Spain thereby contributing to understandings of the heterogeneity of ageing, emphasising global differences, and exploring the impact of these on the lives of our oldest LGBT generations around the world. Our focus of this special issue on care in late life and at the end of life for LGBT people not only makes a valuable contribution to expand our empirical and theoretical knowledge in this field but has even greater salience when situated within the COVID-19 global pandemic.
