We are pleased to present this supplemental issue of The Gerontologist dedicated to reporting on the 2014 data from Aging with Pride: National Health, Aging, and Sexuality/Gender Study (NHAS), the largest national survey to date focused on the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults. The articles in this issue explore a breadth of topics critical to understanding the challenges, strengths, and needs of a growing and underserved segment of the older adult population. This introduction to the supplement provides foundational information to frame the papers that follow. We begin by reviewing population-based findings regarding the size and health status of the LGBT older adult population.
