Of all places for this to come from…the New York Times actually put it in print.
Older lesbian, gay and bisexual adults in California are more likely to suffer from chronic physical and mental health problems than their heterosexual counterparts, a new analysis has found. They also are less likely to have live-in partners or adult children who can help care for them.
The research brief was based on data from the California Health Interview Survey, the nation’s largest state health survey, gathered in 2003, 2005 and 2007 by the Center for Health Policy Research at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Read the whole thing. Of course, they use it as a protected class/diversity issue…that we should be more cognizant of the aging gay population who live alone and tend to be more sick.
