OLOC in Action
OLOC, an international network of Old Lesbians in our 55th year or older, and our supporters, work to defy ageism in our communities and our country. We use education and public discourse as our primary tools. We hold biennial Gatherings allowing us to come together to share experiences and ideas. Mary M. Morgan, in “The Oil of Old Age,” writes: “Aging is not a disease. It is a natural component of being alive.

We are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the Lesbian voice as well as increasing Lesbian visibility in a world that stifles Lesbian culture and threatens to erase it.

Affiliates receive access to: the quarterly Reporter and monthly E-News, Zoom Events, Zoom Support or Small Discussion Groups, and the Email Discussion forum on groups.io. Find out more by visiting Benefits of Joining.

So, may I make a toast?
“To OLOC friends who are some of our best friends because they know the song in our hearts —and can sing it back to us when we’ve forgotten the words!” 
—Ariana Manov, 64,   Los Angeles, CA
activist, advocate, broadcast journalist

“I love OLOC because it brings together old lesbian feminists to talk about our issues, take political action, and support each other.  I contributed to the start of OLOC in 1989.  Since then I have gone to every National Gathering. Over the past 25 years I have made a lot of good friends at Gatherings who I keep up with through the Internet.”
—Natalie Zarchin, Age:  91

“Their work even focuses on the housing needs of aging lesbians (which is quite important  to me personally) and on efforts to  embrace and demystify the word ‘old.’ They instill pride by their very existence.”
—Gaye Adegbalola, 66
