Sherrill Wayland: The Story of Joe

Against his will, Joe was moved from Houston, TX where he lived with his partner of 22 years and placed in a nursing home in St. Louis, MO under the name John Doe – so his partner couldn’t find him.

This story is only one example of why organizations like SAGE Metro St. Louis are vital resources for LGBT seniors.
