APPLICATION/RENEWAL MATRIX GUILD MEMBERSHIP
The aims and objectives of Matrix are to:
• Promote appropriate care and support for lesbian elders
• Provide some accommodation that caters to the needs of ageing
lesbians who experience financial disadvantage
• Support ageing lesbians’ accommodation choices
• Challenge ageism and oppose discrimination against older lesbians
• Advocate on behalf of older lesbians to governments and other
• Promote social contact and peer support among older lesbians
• Research lesbians’ experience of aged care
As well as challenging the discrimination that most of us have experienced, we also
understand the psychological consequences of being closeted to avoid overt insults
or loss of one’s job, friends and family. Matrix exists to address the specific mix of
ageism, lifelong sexism and lesbophobia with which we live.
