Grand Opening of Fountaingrove Lodge- An LGBT Retirement Community

Located in Sonoma County, California, Fountaingrove Lodge is the first-ever LGBT oriented retirement community. It’s amazing to me that this hasn’t been thought of before, but, well, I can’t complain now! Though the center has only had a “model” grand opening, 50% of the units have already been reserved.

At Fountaingrove, you can find:

  • a pool
  • a Bocce court
  • a pet park
  • an art studio
  • a wine “cave” and cellar
  • both a formal and a private dining room
  • a bank
  • a salon and spa…

…among many other things. And don’t worry, a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment only sets you back 4 grand a month. Spend my days as an old queer getting my hair done with a bunch of other femmes? Count me in (once I hit the big bucks, of course).
