A.R.E. (Alaska Rainbow Elders) is a program of Identity. This statewide organization will provide opportunities for older LGBTQIA2S+ adults to form and strengthen meaningful relationships, identify and utilize trusted vendors and service providers, find support and encouragement when needed, and learn about available resources.

A.R.E.  also will provide outreach and educational opportunities for health and business providers to understand the unique experiences and needs of older LGBTQIA2S+ Alaskans.
