  • 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!

  • THE HOST RESORT

    Beach Cove Resort, 4800 South Ocean Blvd., N. Myrtle Beach SC 29582 --- Carolinas PRIME: Asheville, Charolotte, Charleston, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Raleigh. and all Prime Timers chapters around the world --- Bringing together gay and bisexual men for friendship, activities, support, and personal growth

  • 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.

  • ENRICHMENT THROUGH DIVERSITY

    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.

  • REGIONAL EVENTS

    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.

  • TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES

    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.

  • TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES

    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.

  • COMMUNITY

    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.

  • WORLDWIDE CONVENTIONS

    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.

Although our anniversary isn't until August 15, we decided to hold our celebrations on June 16 due to the poor health status of three of our founding members*. The two remaining founding fathers who were able to attend that day, Jerry Leone and Jim Norris, received a picture award taken of them alongside Woody Baldwin during the 20th anniversary event. A video recording of Jerry and Jim relating the events leading to the formation of Prime Timers and what Prime Timers has done for them over the years, was also presented.

It all starts with the individual and the vision he has of something he feels he needs to get accomplished. It's only when that vision is fed by the support he gets from people who are able to align themselves with its purpose that it begins to grow. Lastly, only when that vision becomes much greater than the individual, can it become a force for change in the world.
