PHILADELPHIA -- Elder advocates say a lack of gay-friendly affordable housing for seniors is leading many to hide their sexual orientation after years of being open about it.
Gay seniors fear discrimination, disrespect or worse by health care workers and residents of elder housing facilities.
Experts say the issue is becoming more urgent as baby boomers begin turning 65 this year. They say the gay elder population is expected to double, to at least 3 million, by 2030.
