Sexual Discrimination in old age homes

Jose Roodhuizen of Amsterdam Gay Pride says that there is major sexual discrimination in old age homes.  Among old people there is still a taboo on homosexuality, which means that many lesbians and homosexuals are socially isolated and lonely.  Roodhuizen added that this discrimination expresses itself on the one hand in constant ‘amusing’ remarks on the subject by other residents, or the total alienation of lesbian and homosexual elderly within these institutions.
