    My partner and I would love to live in a community where we are the majority for once in our life. To be able to hold hands without the stares or glares.

    The choices that are available are few. We are both in our 50′s and have been together for over 20 years.

    We are looking for a safe lesbian community.

    Idealy the community would include on-site health care and 24-hour security. As we all continue on our life journey it would be great to stay in one place and have our needs for health care or other personal assistance be available.

    We’d like to have cultural and athletic events, social and recreational activities.

    Public transportation would be a priority as we prefer not to drive.

    A dog park and run would be nice.

    We are looking toward living in the mid to northern east coast.

    All we are asking is, “How about a place to retire equal to heterosexuals.”

    There must me ‘millions’ of us looking for this type of living arrangement.

    Let’s get a dialog started, please.

      We agree so whole heartedly with your thoughts that we are in the midst of opening exactly that!
      OK, not in USA but in Bali, a wonderful island with beautiful people……………..and the cost of living is cheap.

    We are looking for exacting the same thing – everything that i’ve found is so expensive – where are the areas for us “normal” income LGBT supposed to go

    Where can us “normal income” LGBT folks retire? Some consideration might be given to Galveston, TX. Property prices on Galveston Island have a wide range. Small beachfront condos with ocean views can be purchased for less than 100k. Homes in a new Seaside Florida-style community on the beach are less than a million (expensive, yes, but compared to other similar places, not so much).

    The town is gay-friendly and has a welcoming arts community. Parts of the town look like Key West. There are good beaches and so-so beaches. It’s 40-mile close proximity to Houston offers big-city services. The climate is mild in the winter and cooler in the summer than areas on the Texas mainland.

    I live in the Dallas area (300 miles north of Galveston) but have owned a condo in Galveston for 6 years and have never regretted making the purchase. Now 55, I am looking forward to a permanent move to Galveston Island.

    Fort Lauderdale Florida is a very gay friendly community. I am very obviously gay by the way I dress and am comfortable wherever I go in the eastern section of Broward County. Wilton Manors, a neighboring town, is very well known as a gay destination. Housing ranges from affordable apartments to grand villas and businesses and healthcare providers cater to our being comfortable and accepted with them. I’m content here and only the tourists gawk and go home a little more cosmopolitan. Fort Lauderdale, where the boys are and the girls play.

    I have been aware of the need for retiremnet options for women for more than two decades. Now I have a plan and intend to spend the next 10-15 years to make it happen.
    I am building a women-only retirement village in Costa Rica where there is no military, constitutionally guaranteed free water and equality for queers. This village of 1500 units will thrive and be a haven for women who have little to retire on. SilkCity Costa Rica is unique in that it includes six profitable, well-conceived cottage industries where women will have options to work. In addition, the profits will used to offset the cost of retirement housing. And you get to live in a nature-rich country with a 95% literacy rate, ideal climate, and modern, affordable healthcare.
    Please visit my website
    and feel free to respond, ask questions or invest in our first cottage industry, SilkCity B&B.

    Retire places cost way to much. Some people and going to get super rich of a few of us.
    The deal is, that a few folks with some bucks and a heart should pool their money together, and build something real affordable.

    Would like to know where are the Lesbian Retirement homes. Any close to Austin Texas? Some that are reasonable too.

    Here is the deal. I have the know-how needed to run a assisted living or skilled nursing facility. I am looking to build a retirement community in Austin and could use any input on how to make this materialize.

    Another suggestion that I could make is the On Top of the World condo community in Clearwater, FL. It’s a gay friendly place with a very active social club. Check out our webpage:
