Julia Rothman for BuzzFeed News. So I decide to wake the place up a little. The second dinner session has just let out, and the Rendezvous Lounge which is as tacky as it sounds is overflowing with lesbians. No Sheryl Crow, no Michelle Branch. Sure, I say, why not, thinking all the while: If any other year-old lesbians could use a self-esteem boost, all they need to do, clearly, is get themselves on an Olivia cruise.

The Time I Went On A Lesbian Cruise And It Blew Up My Entire Life
A UW lecturer is helping to pioneer a community for women, especially lesbians, who want to grow old together. When they were younger, Nancy Nystrom and her friends joked about one day living together in a home for old lesbians. But as they aged, the joke grew less funny. Lesbian women and gay men often go back in the closet in later life, fearing discrimination and even abuse if they need care. Looking for a place where they can be independent but not be alone, Nystrom and a small group of women from around the country — aged 55 to 78 and predominantly lesbians — are developing KitsHarbour, an interconnected, two-house project they will own and run together.
A Survey of LGBT Americans
People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender LGBT are members of every community. They are diverse, come from all walks of life, and include people of all races and ethnicities, all ages, all socioeconomic statuses, and from all parts of the country. The perspectives and needs of LGBT people should be routinely considered in public health efforts to improve the overall health of every person and eliminate health disparities. Source: CDC.

She and 19 other women have built homes on rural acres in northeast Alabama, where the founders of the Florida community, the Pagoda, relocated in Greene, a retired nurse.
