The New Yorker had a sad article about a Brooklyn retirement home which featured twelve of the country’s 3 million L.G.B.T. seniors, many of whom fear going back into the close as they enter assisted living or senior communities.  34% of those surveyed fear having to hide their sexuality when entering a retirement facility, but a national chain called Watermark is trying to change that.  It is pursuing a platinum accreditation from SAGE, an organization that serves L.G.B.T. seniors.  This is a sad story which, hopefully, will have a happy ending eventually.
