The Greek letter 'lambda' is often used in connection with gay
"The lambda, a Greek letter, was first used as a gay symbol in 1970 by
the Gay Activists Alliance (GAA) in New York City. That was just half
a year after the Stonewall riots of 1969. Those riots formed the start
of the organised gay community. In no time the lambda became 'the' gay
icon. A fire in the headquarters of the GAA, caused by homophobic
arsonists, meant the end of the organisation but their lambda symbol
survived. Why the lambda was chosen isn't clear. One of the reasons
could be that the L of lambda stands for Liberation. Fact is that the
lambda is still seen as one of the official gay symbols."
"The lowercase Greek letter lambda carries several meanings. First of
all, it represents scales, and thus balance. The Greeks considered
balance to be the constant adjustment necessary to keep opposing
forces from overcoming each other. The hook at the bottom of the right
leg of the lambda represents the action required to reach and maintain
a balance. To the Spartans, the lambda meant unity. They felt that
society should never infringe on anyone's individuality and freedom.
The Romans adopted the letter to represent "the light of knowledge
shed into the darkness of ignorance." Finally, in physics the symbol
designates and energy change. Thus the lambda, with all its meanings,
is an especially apt symbol for the gay liberation movement, which
energetically seeks a balance in society and which strives through
enlightenment to secure equal rights for homosexual people.
Reportedly, Ancient Greeks may have also placed the lambda on shields
of gay men and their lovers who were among the fighting elite of the
Michigan State University: The Alliance of Les-Bi-Gay-Transgender and
I suggest the name "Lambda Lane" for your planned retirement village.
Most heterosexuals will not get the "lambda" reference, but I believe
it will be well understood, and respected, by your potential clients.
Another Greek term, 'Uranian', comes from Plato:
"Plato is notable because he advanced the belief that some men are
inherently homosexual, just as some men are inherently heterosexual.
Plato believed that love between two men is superior to that between a
man and a woman. Plato called this love 'uranian'" love and suggested
this love was ruled by a different aspect of the goddess Aphrodite."
Perhaps 'Uranian' could be part of your corporate name. You might
consider something such as 'The Uranian Group', 'Uranians of
Australia', or 'Uranian Associates'.
