Dear SAGE Family,

It has been my great honor and pleasure to serve as the Program Coordinator for SAGE Albuquerque over the last 5 years. I've met so many great people, had lots of laughs, celebrated lots of Pi Days, and along with you, helped create a thriving community of older LGBT folks.
I have felt a huge sense of responsibility to make our little corner of the LGBT world an inclusive, responsive, and well-run (albeit imperfect) organization. I'm ready to pass that torch to someone else. My last day is scheduled to be March 31 - but I'll still be around!
Please see below for the Program Coordinator Job Posting, in case you or someone you know might be interested.
Thanks for all of the support and good times you have given me over the years!
Fondly, Havens

SAGE PROGRAM COORDINATOR JOB POSTING

SAGE Albuquerque provides support for older LGBT people in the Albuquerque Metropolitan Area through advocacy, social programs, education, support groups, and resource distribution. We counter isolation, fear, and loneliness by creating a caring community of LGBT elders who will look out for each other and share some laughs. Our current Program Coordinator is stepping down from this position at the end of March 2021 and we are looking for applications to fill the Program Coordinator position moving forward.

The Program Coordinator position is a part time position for approximately 10 hours/week. This is a contractor position and pays $25/hour. The number of hours the coordinator works varies somewhat depending on the calendar; Pride and Thanksgiving to New Years are typically busy seasons for SAGE. This position would be a great fit for a self-starter who has connections to the Albuquerque LGBT community. The coordinator works independently and is supervised by the SAAC. The SAAC’s desired start date for this position is March 8, 2021. The position description is available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h4nUukCZ72Lk4HHmql_DM3Xr-FF7LU9J/view?usp=sharing.

We have just received funding for a second position to run the Friendly Voice program, a telephone check-in program. That position will need to finalize the program design, pilot test with a small population, and implement it. We anticipate that the person who fills this position would have a social work and/or program planning background. The two positions could be combined for a total of 20 hours/week, with the Friendly Voice hours being compensated at $35/hour.

If you have strong connections to the greater Albuquerque LGBT community and wish to be considered for this position, please send a resume and cover letter to Paul Oostenbrug at [email protected] and use a subject line “SAGE ALBUQUERQUE PROGRAM COORDINATOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST.”

Today, our community lost an icon. This morning, Phyllis Lyon, the world-famous le***an activist, died peacefully at age 95. Our hearts break from this tragic loss.

Lyon was a giant in the history of our movement in the Bay Area, across the country, and around the world. She and her love of over 50 years, Del Martin, were the first same-sex couple to be married in San Francisco in 2004 — and the first after the California Supreme Court legalized marriage equality in 2008. Their love — and their fire and their vision — forever changed our movement.

Lyon’s groundbreaking activism stretched far beyond the fight for marriage equality. In 1955, she and Del were founding members of Daughters of Bilitis, the first social and political organization for le***ans in the United States. They were also leaders in the fights to decriminalize homosexuality and ban employment discrimination against g**s and le***ans.

Today, we find ourselves in crisis — and now, in enormous grief. But the memory of Phyllis Lyon — her unwavering commitment to community, her profound courage, her vision, her leadership, and her enduring love — inspires us to carry on with determination, hope, and, yes, with love.
