Another communi ty is being planned for Palm Springs, Calif. Eric Liston said he could be a future Rainbow Vision resident who won't need to be recruited. He began checking into the community the minute he heard that it was on the drawing board. "I'm interested in that sort of concept," he said. He remembers looking around his mother's surroundings when she lived at Bayou Manor and thinking, "What I would like to find is a gay version of this." Since he's a frequent visitor to Santa Fe, he said, he's wondering if he may not have found what he's looking for in Rainbow Vision. When retires from his position as financial director at the Assistance Fund in Houston, he says he may rent a condo in Santa Fe and keep his house in Houston just in case. "I thought I could go for a few months after I retire and see if it's the Shangri-La it seems to be when you're a tourist," he said. He said he loves the landscape, and he is a collector of American Indian art, so it seems as though it should be a fit. If he decides Santa Fe is right, Liston said. "I would like to buy into something like Rainbow Vision." The community will offer 40 club condos and 20 independent living condos for purchase, 60 independent living rentals and 26 assisted living rentals. Square footage ranges from 700 to 1,250 square feet. Condo sales are expected to start at around $220,500.

The community consists of walking and biking trails, hot tubs, shops, restaurants and a rooftop bar. ALTHOUGH MANY GAYS AND LESBIANS have expressed interest in the community, Silver said. Rainbow Vision practices diversity. She said people in their 40s have expressed interest as well as straights who figure Rainbow Vision could be more fun that other communities that are available. The community, she said, welcomes anyone who celebrates diversity. While the journey to Santa Fe began in earnest in the mid-1990s as Silver began looking for investors and for others who were game to hop on board, she said Rainbow Vision probably started much, much earlier. "We sort of trace our roots back to the Stonewall event," she said, mentioning the infamous riot outside a New York gay bar in 1969. "At that point we kind of thought of ourselves as having rights," she said. "It's a long vision, the vision of the rainbow people." Now, she said, gays and lesbians are realizing that when they retire, they need options beyond those available to their parents. "We're definitely envisioning our future ourselves," she said. "We're not going to be thrust into a situation that might not be right for us." At the end of the day, when residents of Rainbow Vision are eating dinner, hav ing a drink or lounging around the pool, Silver said, "They'll be able to share experiences with people who have had similar experiences, who had similar cultural icons."
