Who doesn't dream of ending their days in peace and in a heavenly place. This is what a retirement home for gays proposes. This house will be located in the town of Torremolinos in the province of Malaga in Spain. It will be possible to break the loneliness among new gay friends without discrimination from the employees.
From 2011, elderly people of homosexual orientation will move in. This initiative comes from Antonio Gutiérrez Dorado, a well known LGBT activist.
Even today, the elderly are considered invisible. Imagine when we are homosexuals! Touristiquement Gay interviewed Francois, who is excited about the idea of such a retirement home: "I would like to live in a retirement home for homosexuals so that I don't experience discrimination.
However, this type of home is not unanimously supported. "I'm not the Village type. I wouldn't want to spend my old age in a gay retirement home," David told Touristiquement Gay.
Society is aging and there will be a shortage of places for seniors. We are just beginning to feel the movement of elderly homosexuals in the residences
The retirement home in Torremolinos will be located in front of the Plaza San Miguel from 2011.
