"This integrated view of aging and sexual and gender minorities fills a major gap in the collective knowledge of and cultural responsiveness to these invisible communities."

"Offers a valuable contribution to the developing literature concerned with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) ageing."

"It is a comprehensive, thought-provoking resource, which I hope would not only be enjoyed by those with an already firm interest in the subject but also by anyone working with older people."

"Witten and Eyler have written an immensely comprehensive overview of aging for sexual and gender minorities, outlining clinical, research, and policy issues within the context of life cycle development. A much-needed and long-awaited resource, this book delineates issues facing LGBTI persons, their families, and caregivers."

"This book contains a special wisdom: it articulates the disparities aging LBGTI people face, and—more importantly—it illuminates areas of specialized knowledge that urgently deserve wider attention."

"This book merits serious attention for its empirical breadth and theoretical compass. By using gerontological constructs (such as resilience and cultural/structural lag), Witten, Eyler and their collaborators underscore the importance of multidimensional, life-course perspectives to understand the stories, needs, and demands of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and intersexed persons."
