The Dallas Morning News ran a story this week on one of several new niche residential markets: retirement villages for gay & lesbian residents.
The article about Rainbow Vision in Santa Fe said there were 21 gay & lesbian retirement communities either under construction or on the drawing board in the US. Other new niche retirement markets cater to Asian-Americans, the deaf, golfers, military veterans & university alumni.
The National Gay & Lesbian Task Force said the number of gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgender Americans over 65 would more than double in the next 25 years, from an estimated 3 million to 7 million.
