Welcome to Prime Timers Kansas City, also known as PTKC.  Our chapter was founded in October 2002 with about 20 members. We have grown to now enjoy the camaraderie of 52 members. 

Prime Timers are older gay or bisexual men and younger adult men who admire mature men. Our members are men who choose to have their social lives enriched by the diverse activities in which our members engage. No single definition can describe Prime Timers, as they come from all walks of life.  Prime Timers involve themselves in their community with volunteerism, politics, gay issues, arts, entertainment, and every other facet of healthy living. Prime timers are workers and retired, some are always on the go, some enjoy the quiet company of others at home, some are business men and professionals, and some are fathers and caregivers.  But one thing is true of all Prime Timers, they enjoy the opportunities and friendships that develop with other Prime Timers, even throughout the world. 

Despite popular opinion, the joys of the gay lifestyle need not stop at age 40 or 60 or even 80. Kansas City Prime Timers is part of a worldwide organization that provides mature gay and bisexual men, and their younger adult friends, with opportunities to enjoy social, educational, and recreational activities in a supportive atmosphere.

We have dining out and breakfast gatherings weekly:

  • Every Monday at 5 PM we meet at Bistro 303 on 303 Westport Road for $6 sandwiches with fries
  • Every Thursday at 10 AM we meet at Westport Coffee House on 4010 Pennsylvania for coffee and discussion.

Monthly group activities may also include movies, our ZOO, museums, art galleries, day trips, and Heartland Men's Chorus concerts.
