Living Out Palm Springs, Boylan aims to offer an option that won’t require closeting. Living Out, under construction in that California desert city, will be an apartment community for active LGBTQ+ people aged 55 and older.

Designed in a contemporary interpretation of mid-century modern architecture, it will have 122 units (several different floor plans are available) and amenities including pools, a restaurant and bar (under the direction of celebrity chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken), a fitness center, a putting green, a dog park, housekeeping and concierge services, and more.Living Out will be the first luxury LGBTQ+ senior community in Southern California, according to its developers.

It had a groundbreaking in November, and the complex is expected to be ready for move-in early next year.Boylan, a lesbian who’s a 30-year member of the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s board of directors, says she’s talked to LGBTQ+ people who felt the need to hide their identity in senior housing, to the extent of taking down pictures of partners and others when housekeepers entered their homes.“We’re the generation that butted up against the wall of discrimination and pushed our way through,” she says. “As we grow older and enter the last phase of life, it’s just a travesty to think any of us have to go back in the closet or become less authentic.”Living Out is the brainchild of Loren Ostrow, a longtime friend of Boylan’s who has also served on the L.A.
