Abstract

This is a transcript of an oral history interview with a lesbian who lives in a gay/lesbian retirement community in Florida, the first such community in the United States. She briefly describes her childhood, education, and life before retiring. Most of the interview focuses on life in the community: how she and her partner discovered it, relationships with neighbors, etc. There is also a substantial tangent about academia.
