Program Description


"There's a crying need," says Suzanne Bienvenu, marketing and communications director for the Urban Home-Maison Urbaine project. Gays over age 60 "had a lot of trouble coming out of the closet," she explains, "and then when they went to traditional residences, they faced tremendous discrimination. For them, it was like going back into the closet."

"Aging members of the LGBT community are twice as likely to live alone, half as likely to have no close relatives to call for help and four times less likely to have children to help them, according to Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Elders."
