Abstract

This is a transcription 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 life story, mentioning her time as a nun and how she came to accept her sexual orientation. Most of the interview focuses on life in the community: relationships with neighbors, social activities, clubs, et cetera. The interviewee describes her practice of past life regression therapy and Quantum Touch healing. There is also a lengthy discussion about her cats.
