What are the Top 20 Cities for LGBT Retirement in 2018?

The amount of senior citizens in the United States is expected to double over the next four decades from 40 million in 2010 all the way up to 88 million by 2050, thanks in part to the Baby Boomer generation.

Although those statistics are easy to calculate to a certain degree, one that tends to be harder to find within is the amount of that population that identifies itself as LGBT.  Retirement is supposed to be an incredibly enjoyable time that each and every person to experience, no matter what their background is, as the ability to live out their golden years can be a very fun one especially if you are in a great city.

According to the national nonprofit Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Elders (SAGE), today there are 3 million LGBT people age 55+ living in the United States. With that number increasing each year, the need to discover locations that are welcoming to LGBT elders also increases.
