A new survey from the AARP has found that the majority of gay men over 45 living in the United States are single. The survey included nearly 2,000 LGBTQ adults from all 50 states and asked people about their thoughts on age and aging.

The survey found that gay men are much more likely to live alone with 57% of gay men over the age of 45 indicating they were single as compared to 39% of lesbians. They did not share what percent of the heterosexual population is single over the age of 45, which I would have found interesting to learn.

The survey, which was first published in March of this year, helps us better understand and be better able to respond to the challenges facing an aging LGBTQ community.  The survey explored other issues including access to quality healthcare, long term care and housing, which mirror concerns the general population share but which many in the gay community face without the help of family or children. You can read the full report here: Maintaining Dignity.
