It may consist of a one-acre lot at the edge of town, a acre rural tract of land, or anything in between.

As attitudes and awareness about the LGBT community come full circle around the country, many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender seniors are finding they now have more choices when it comes to living out their silver years in a senior living community. It wasn't that long ago that many would have been turned away as a matter of policy, rejected by staff, or made to feel unwelcome in their own would-be homes. Happily, things are changing.
I'm 24 and have not been to the states before. I'm zig- zagging around california, then going as high as oregon, across to montana, through colorado, down to texas, louisiana and twisting further through the south up to new york starting in the beginning of october. I think you are going to need to post more specific questions in the forums for the cities you wish to visit. Not sure about the "zigzagging" around California?

Now, in our 35th year, our membership and musicianship have both grown. With more than 80 active singers, we believe that the West Coast Singers is one of the premier LGBTQ choruses in the world, offering the rich, full-bodied sound that can only come from a mixed chorus of voices.
Ages: Very broad range of ages from teens to 80's, the average probably being in the 30's, 40's and 50's. No sign language facilities. Contact:
The city itself has, among its many nicknames, the nicknames "gay capital of the world" and "the gay Mecca", and has been described as "the original 'gay-friendly city'". These transient and diverse populations thrust into a relatively anarchic environment were less likely to conform to social conventions. For example, with an unbalanced gender ratio, men often assumed roles conventionally assigned to women in social and domestic settings. Cross-gender dress and same-sex dancing were prevalent at city masquerade balls where some men would assume the traditional role of women going so far as to wear female attire.
The Archives acquired its present name after the death of June Mazer, in honor of her work as a community activist and invaluable supporter of the Archives. The June L. Included are personal letters and scrapbooks, artwork, manuscripts, books, records, newspapers, magazines, photographs, videotapes, flyers, papers of lesbian and feminist organizations, private papers, and even clothing, such as softball uniforms from the s and 50s. Hundreds of lesbians and feminists have been inspired to donate artifacts of their personal and collective histories.
