From the beginning of this work, we knew that sexuality and older adults was a topic few felt comfortable addressing.
The Seniors a GOGO project tackled this challenge by developing and performing the “Viva Vintage Monologues”, a series of stories that explore sexuality in the later years. The monologues focus on the depth of sexuality in a humorous, warm and thoughtful way.

can be viewed on our Facebook page.
This led to very successful performances by the Seniors a GOGO theatre troupe at public libraries, and other venues throughout Calgary.
Members of the Seniors a GOGO theatre troupe continue to be agency volunteers and still perform for live audiences.
The Viva Vintage Monologues were also made into digital stories to enable us to use them in future programs and training.
We are now selling a curriculum package for service providers that includes a DVD of the digital stories. We also continue to offer ongoing training to students and professionals who work with older adults.
