Abstract

This is a transcript of an oral history interview with two lesbians who live in a gay/lesbian retirement community in Florida, the first such community in the United States. They briefly describe their careers before retiring, and discuss how they met and became partners. Most of the interview focuses on life in the community: how they discovered it, relationships with neighbors, social events, et cetera. There is also a lengthy discussion about social networking sites and the Internet.
