According to Mayor Michelle Wu, the LGBT Senior Housing Project has been years in the making. The Mayor said that the old William Burton Rogers School will become 74 units of housing for LGBT seniors. The groundbreaking ceremony was held last month.

“To see cowards come out in the dark of night and try to intimidate or put their hate on this larger community,” added Wu. “It doesn’t represent what we have seen throughout this multiyear process,” said Wu.
