I am the Manager of Education and Training for SAGE's National Resource Center on LGBT Aging where I am responsible for coordinating nationwide trainings about the needs of LGBT older adults for aging providers and LGBT organizations, developing training curricula, and tracking training outcomes and evaluations. I have contributed to the New Statesman, you can hear my recent radio interview about my work in LGBT aging, and I'm on twitter at @johnstontimr
I received my PhD in Philosophy from SUNY Stony Brook. My research focuses on feminist and queer theory, contemporary French philosophy (specifically Bergson), LGBT aging and biomedical ethics.
As an Inclusivity Consultant, I work with conference organizers and event planners to create professional environments that welcome diversity, invite conversation, and foster a sense of community. I specialize in LGBTQ sensitivity training and workplace bullying prevention.
