LGBTQ baby boomers also know as “the Stonewall Generation,” came into their own as the 1969 uprising at the Stonewall Inn was a force that helped push for gay rights.

At a younger age this generation faced many obstacles and now they’re facing new challenges as they get older.

The need for LGBTQ senior housing has been growing.

48 % of LGBTQ seniors have said they've experienced housing discrimination.

One project in Boston is helping tackle this problem and is a model for other cities to use.

An old school has been purchased and is being renovated in to low-income housing.

Other LGBTQ senior housing projects similar to this have popped up in other cities.
