    The rainbow-colored hot air balloons fly high in the skies each Fall during its famous International Hot Air Balloon Festival, but the rainbow flags fly high all year long in the LGBTQ-friendly city of Albuquerque. Whether it is the stunning sunsets, the popular green chili breakfast burritos, the beautiful Bosque trails and the Sandia Mountains, the city where the multi-Emmy award-winning show Breaking Bad was filmed is the perfect backdrop for outdoorsy seniors who enjoy a diverse city with ideal weather.

    Albuquerque has a city-sponsored Human Rights Commission which demonstrates the city’s dedication to protecting its LGBTQ community. In addition, New Mexico has provided benefits to State employee same-sex partners since 2003. The State repealed its anti-sodomy law in 1975, making it one of the first in the nation to do so, and more progress has been made since. Organizations and resources favoring the LGBTQ population in Albuquerque include:

    The LGBTQ population in the state is 4.5 percent and seniors make up slightly over 14 percent of the city’s population. With an average cost of living and low property taxes, Albuquerque is a solid choice for older LGBTQ adults desiring a relaxed and affordable place to call home.
