For LGBTQ folks looking for a supportive community in Palm Springs, Living Out is now accepting reservations for leasing and scheduled to open this year.
Studies show that up to a third of LGBTQ seniors fear having to “re-closet” as they age, according to Lavender Magazine, and that’s why Living Out is so important.
“This is a senior community in Palm Springs that’s intentionally designed to provide a safe, joyful living environment for LGBTQ seniors to continue to live and love out and proud,” the magazine published.
Built on nine acres in central Palm Springs, Living Out comprises 122 apartments in four-unit configurations ranging from a one bedroom, one and a half baths and a den, to a two bedroom with two and a half baths and a den.
Units are sized between 1,100 square feet to 1,700 square feet and has a large usable balcony or patio.
Living Out has dramatic landscaping and desert mountain views, an upscale, full-service restaurant and bar operated by LGBTQ+ chefs and restaurateurs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken.
The development also features a movie theatre with reclining seats, a game room and card room, and an arts and crafts studio, a fitness center, massage rooms, a hair salon with manicure and pedicure facilities, and a lounge.
Outdoors, there’s covered surface parking for all residents including guest and retail parking, an event lawn, BBQ and entertainment areas, a resort-style swimming pool and jacuzzi. Bocce ball, a putting green, orchards, rose garden and walking paths also fill the space.
