  • For the best times of your life

    Prime Timers are older gay or bisexual men (and younger men who admire mature men) who enrich their social lives, engage in diverse activities, and enjoy opportunities and friendships with other Prime Timers throughout the world. Our organization is emerging as a leading force in the gay and bisexual communities with over 80 chapters throughout North America, Europe, and Australia. Look for a chapter near you!


    Prime Timers was founded in 1987 by a retired professor, Woody Baldwin. He felt a wide gap existed in today's society which caters almost exclusively to youth. Woody began the Boston Chapter by placing ads in local newspapers and soliciting his many friends. The attendance at the first meeting indicated to Woody that a need existed for social and cultural organizations to aid and support the aging gay and bisexual man. Now this organization has grown to over 80 chapters worldwide, located throughout North America, Europe and Australia.


    Our members are men who choose to have their social lives enriched by the diverse activities in which our members engage. Prime Timers are fathers, care givers, businessmen, entrepreneurs, workers, and retirees. One thing is true of all Prime Timers: they enjoy the opportunities and friendships that develop with other Prime Timers throughout the world.


    Come learn more about Prime Timers, make new friends, and explore different parts of the country and world! Regional events invite members to come together for fun and friendship. Destinations such as Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, and Denver are regular, annual events that are open to all Prime Timers members and friends.


    Individual chapters welcome the chance to meet visitors from other chapters. Letters asking for local information and recommendations will be well received and acted upon. Chapters enjoy showing off their communities and having visitors come away with a feeling of kinship and brotherhood with their new-found friends.


    Sail the seven seas with fellow Prime Timers members from all around the world! Worldwide and chapter sponsored cruises explore exotic destinations such as Rome, Italy, the Western Caribbean, Miami, Boston, Amsterdam, Munich, the Rhine River, and many more. It is an experience that you will never forget.


    Prime Timers chapters offer a myriad of weekly and monthly activities to suit social interests. Members get together for dinners, potlucks, cards, board games, movies, outdoor adventures, and much more. It is a sense of strong community and supportive brotherhood that highlights each chapter and throughout the organization.


    The Prime Timers Worldwide Convention is held every two years in major cities to allow our members to gather to socialize with other Prime Timers, attend workshops geared towards Prime Timers and to conduct business of the organization. Plans are always underway for the next upcoming convention.

Your chapter's logo is the "face" of your chapter; it is one of the first things that new people remember when they think about your website. It is important to have a logo that is attractive, memorable, and uniquely represents your chapter's place in Prime Timers Worldwide. An old or poorly designed logo can lower your chapter's reputation.

PTWW can provide a logo for your chapter. You are provided with multiple sizes of the logo, from a small logo used for correspondence to a large logo that will fit on a parade banner. You are also provided with the original PhotoShop design file so that you can tweak the logo to suit your needs.

Looking at the news, you'd think that all the gay news there is, is about marriage. It has been an exciting year and a half since the tide turned in the 2012 election, with three states approving same-sex marriage. And then, a year ago this June 26, the Windsor case was decided by the Supreme Court, the hated "Defense of Marriage Act," or DOMA was essentially overturned, and the floodgates opened.
