    This subject is not new, so I am surprised that this article makes it seem so.

    Years ago, I served on the Board of Directors of Friendly House Inc. in Portland, Oregon. Around the turn of the 21at century we started a program called “Gay and Grey” which served the growing community of gay and lesbian seniors. As far as I know, it still provides services to this cohort of people.

    I also recall that there were LGBT friendly retirement centers that were opening up around the country, but I do seem to recall a New York Times article a few years back saying that they were not getting the numbers of clients they expected and had problems opening up or staying open. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/29/us/gay-retirement-communities-struggling-in-the-recession.html?pagewanted=all
