Nursing home for homosexuals
My idea comes from two simple findings:
1. homosexuals are often single when they become elderly people
2. those of them that have money usually don’t have anyone to pass their heritage on to.
This information is supported by the following article, which claims that:
Nearly 20% of gay seniors have no one to care for them should they become ill, vs. 2% for heterosexual seniors.
2/3 of gay seniors live alone vs. 1/3 of heterosexual seniors.
( http://gaylife.about.com/b/2006/06/12/mature-gays-find-solace-in-gay-nursing-home.htm )
From these two statements, one may conclude that elderly homosexuals sometimes have money to spend and wish to be entertained by external people since they sometimes don’t have any close family.
Moreover, most senior homosexuals often fear ending up in a retirement home where gays and straight are mixed, due to homophobia.
Since it does not exist yet, I think one should start a nursing home exclusively dedicated to homosexuals. It would be somewhere fun. There would be parties till 8pm and sexy nursing “”"”girls”"”"…
However, on a longer term, this could also have the effect of even more secluding homosexuals from heterosexuals, thus increasing homophobia.
Now tell me, what would YOUR gay nursing home look like?????
(that was kind of a gay question)
