Proposed LGBT Retirement Community: Bataan, Philippines

B Bataan 1There is a largely untapped market in the Philippines for LGBT retirement communities- considering it is the most tolerant gay destination in Asia. The Home for the Golden Gays is hoping to find a new home and assist this ignored demographic to promote safe gay retirement in the Philippines. Our vision is to integrate gay people into retirement homes without having to face discrimination.  We want to ensure social acceptance for their choice of lifestyle through their old age. The facility that we plan to create through your help can be offered to locals and foreigners alike. It aims to provide staff and medical care practitioners who understand each retiree’s needs.

We want to provide gays and lesbians a scenic community near the sea that promotes healthy living in one of the most beautiful parts of the Philippines.

The Home for the Golden Gays proposes:
