Gay people will make up between 7 to 10% of the senior population in the next 25 years and are twice as likely to live alone as their straight counterparts. They are also less likely to have insurance, less likely to have someone to care for them if they are ill, and 90% understandably don’t have children. Looking beyond marriage, the gay rights movement needs to take care of our seniors. We’re all gonna need the help someday.
