Abstract

Older lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans∗1 (LGBT) people are extremely concerned about older age housing and social care provision, perceived as ill equipped to meet their needs. Some want gender/sexuality specific housing/housing with care. While such projects exist in Europe, the USA, Australia and Canada, there are none in the United Kingdom. The lack of 'LGBT-friendly' mainstream provision and of alternative specialist services in the UK, produce profound spatial inequalities for LGBT people in later life. Drawing on the literature, including my own recent research with older lesbian, gay and bisexual people, I consider the legal and social policy implications.
