LGBT Friendly Senior Housing Complex in Philadelphia

For those who don’t know, the Philadelphia Gay News (PGN) has been around for a long time and they are still going strong online. It’s one of the most respected papers in the country for the LGBT community.

You can get there from here.
I don’t get the print paper anymore but I do read them online faithfully.

This article, here, about LGBT friendly senior housing is very interesting. I’ve been told by a real estate friend that it’s allegedly illegal (and not ethical) to say “LGBT Senior Housing” because that would be alleged discrimination. So I guess if they use the word “friendly” it’s safe? I don’t know the details.

Either way, it’s nice to see something like this happening, and in a place not too far from where I live. I’ve seen many LGBT seniors placed in facilities that weren’t LGBT friendly, and it was like putting them in prison. This I’ve seen first hand. It’s not hearsay.
