Sweden opens first retirement home for gays David Landes. Share this article. File photo: Sweden's first retirement home for elderly members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT communities opened in Stockholm on Friday, capping a four-year effort that may spark a new trend.
Forty men and women have already moved into the facility, which means the majority of the association's 90 members are waiting for a flat to open up. This is a place where people actually seek out contact with their neighbours, rather than try to avoid it.
When it became clear that there was strong interest among members of the city's LGBT community for an senior living facility with their interests in mind, the project gained additional momentum. While the facility caters to the needs of homosexuals, including staff trained in issues specific to the community, it would be open wSeeden anyone and would accept residents from around the country.
