  • 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 75 chapters throughout North America and Australia. Look for a chapter near you!

  • Woody Baldwin

    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.

We are a relatively new (2-year-old) chapter in mid-Missouri based in Columbia and our members live within a 30-mile radius of the city. Our group began with a Craigslist ad 4 years ago, asking for any gay men in the area who wanted to secretly get together. A dozen guys showed up answering the ad. We continued this way for a period of time. Then Roger Neil (past President and current Vice President) presented some information about Prime Timers and everyone thought that this was the way to go.

Forty-nine Prime Timers enjoyed a September-October cruise from London to Miami.

This was a repositioning cruise. Most cruise lines offer tours of European ports in summer and ports in the Caribbean, western Mexico, and between Los Angeles and Hawaii in winter. The ships are repositioned between Europe and the Americas. These ships were previously moved with a crew but without passengers until cruise lines learned that if they dropped the base price low enough, customers would eagerly book this passage during the off season. Look at any cruise line website to see how prices start low at the beginning of the cruising season, increase during the prime travel season, then fall again at the end of the season. The low-priced transatlantic crossings, such as this one promoted by Prime Timers Worldwide (PTWW), are repositioning cruises. Few children and teens are on board as school is back in session. On the downside, the best weather is past, something we experienced in Reykjavik where it was 41F/5C.
