Jim Meadows, MSW, is the executive director of New Orleans Advocates for LGBTQ+ Elders (NOAGE). 

In addition to his work with NOAGE, he is the secretary for the LGBT Archives Project of Louisiana, and he serves on the board of directors for A Home Among Friends, which aims to provide affordable housing to low-income LGBT seniors in New Orleans.

He is vice president of the New Orleans Steamboat Club, one of the oldest gay social clubs in America. He is particularly interested in providing support to LGBT elders, and in preserving the history and legacy of the New Orleans LGBT community.

Joe Fay is the founder of A Home Among Friends, a 501(c)(3) created to provide affordable housing for very low-income LGBTQ seniors. We believe communities that are modest in scope work best to create not just housing, but homes for older folks who deserve as much as anyone to enjoy their golden years in safe, welcoming environments.

Joe spent 30 years in the non-profit sector in senior management and leadership. He is a graduate of Boston College and Columbia University's Graduate School of Business. He served as a U.S. Navy Supply Corps Officer between college and graduate school. He and his long-time partner were recently married in New Orleans. They live in the Irish Channel in a restored Italianate home dating from the 1880s.

New Orleans
New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the "Big Easy," it's known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live music scene, and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African, and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties.
