The commenter who called it virtue signaling may be right; it will take follow through and evaluation to know if this promising step yields the intended benefits. However, it is naive and erroneous to assert that there is no anti-gay discrimination in housing. Florida law permits it—the Republican controlled legislature declined to pass laws against such discrimination in housing or employment. This step also sought to protect people from discrimination based on their hiv status. Kudos!

More virtue signaling which won’t amount to a hill of beans of difference in actual outworking. No one is turning away queer residents unless they are a demonstrable threat to a retirement community.

I LOVE THIS!!! Two winters ago I had the chance to speak at the monthly meeting of the Prime Gentlmen of Ft. Lauderdale at the Pride Center in Wilton Manors. I told them they make me proud to be a gay man by their example of vitality and community. The community they’ve created in WM is a model for LGBTQ retirement communities—all communities—everywhere. Coming from the generation that bore the brunt of HIV-AIDS and rose to its challenges, the housing project again shows love in action.
