LGBT San Diego's Trailblazing Generation: Housing Related Needs of LGBT Seniors
February 2011 | The San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center
“"Today, as they age and retire, this generation has another challenge — a fight for the dignified, fair and equal treatment of themselves, their partners, and friends as they age."”
During the past two years a group of concerned San Diego LGBT community members began meeting regularly at San Diego’s LGBT Community Center (The Center). These individuals shared a common concern regarding the lack of LGBT-affirmative senior housing in San Diego County, particularly affordable housing. The guiding mission of the group was to help to facilitate the development of a long-term community vision for affordable housing and other living facilities, including housing-related health and social services, for the LGBT senior residents of San Diego County.
