GayRealEstate.com is a Proud Supporter of Expanded Protections for LGBTQ Retirees
Press Release - October 12, 2018
GayRealEstate.com, a service connecting clients with compatible agents, supports the continued protection of LGBTQ members facing discrimination, and the fear of discrimination, in retirement communities. GayRealEstate.com proudly supports the Gay and Lesbian Association of Retiring Persons (GLARP) and Services and Advocacy for LGBT Elders (SAGE).
Three out of four adults age 45 and older who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender said they are concerned about having enough support from family and friends as they age, according to a survey conducted by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). Many are also worried about how they will be treated in long-term care facilities and want specific services for older adults in the LGBTQ community.
Concerns within the LGBT community about long-term care are great, particularly for gender expansive individuals, according to the survey. Majorities cite concerns about neglect, abuse, refused access to services or harassment. The possibility of being forced to hide one’s identity as a condition of receiving care is a concern for just under half of lesbian, gay and bisexual respondents and for 70 percent of transgender and gender expansive respondents.
The AARP survey based their findings on data collected from Oct. 27 to Nov. 12, 2017 through an online survey of 1,762 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, age 45 and older, according to their website.
GayRealEstate.com is committed to ensuring that their clients are connected with agents who will represent their best interests and treat them with respect. With more than 25 years of experience as the industry leader, GayRealEstate.com is proud to support the LGBTQ community and strives to ensure that every property transaction is conducted with integrity, void of discrimination and intolerance.
GayRealEstate.com strives to ensure the protection and respect of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification, and is proud to support expanded protections for elderly LGBTQ through their support for GLARP, SAGE and more.
