Best Cities for LGBT Seniors: #10 - Columbus, Ohio
Columbus may not stand out as a place with a thriving gay scene, but it's actually one of the best places in the Midwest for members of the LGBT community to call home. The city has a large and active gay population focused largely in the vibrant Short North and German Village neighborhoods. It also has a generally laid back feel and a progressive, tolerant vibe which is often compared to many larger East Coast cities.

Beyond the LGBT community, Columbus is also a very sensible place for all retirees to spend their golden years. The city receives high marks for health and safety due to the high number of Medicare licensed doctors and top-notch area hospitals. There are also plenty of senior living communities, with nursing home costs well below those in other large cities. The cost of housing is also relatively affordable, as is the overall cost of living, and the city boasts low property taxes to go along with the state's moderately low income tax.

Retirees from all walks of life want to settle down in a place that is fun and inviting, but also affordable and accommodating to the needs of older people. Members of the LGBT community have to be even more selective. Even in 2016 not all cities in America are particularly welcoming to those living "non-traditional" lifestyles and only a few select places have thriving social environments for LGBT residents.

Using SeniorScore™, an unbiased, data-driven algorithm that determines the most accommodating places in America for seniors, we have determined the best cities in the country for retirees who identify with the LGBT community. The SeniorScore™ evaluates over 100 variables across multiple categories that are pertinent to an area's older residents, including access to healthcare, social and recreational activities, general affordability, safety, quality of environment, and more. Additionally, we analyzed the overall LGBT populations per capita for each city, the presence of gay-friendly social environments, support for gay-owned businesses, and the overall level of tolerance and legal protection of the communities.
