This paper reports on a novel approach to setting research priorities relevant to the needs of older LGBT people. Research is growing in this area and has recognised the negative impact of contemporary and historical discrimination towards non-normative genders and sexualities. The results of a symposium, survey and agreement analysis are presented to identify the levels of priority placed on sixty different research topics. Discussion focuses on the novelty and/or similarity to existing research patterns on LGBT ageing, as well as prioritising topics such as: how to include unheard voices; exploring trans* people’s experiences and preferences around long-term hormone use; and, embedding research findings into policy and practice.
