  • 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.

  • 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.

I am Charles Harshbarger, president of Prime Timers of Tampa Bay. We only have, at present, about 100 members, but our influence is felt in the entire Tampa Bay Metro Area. St. Petersburg, a part of our area, is host to the largest Pride parade and celebration in the state of Florida. This is an extremely "gay friendly" city.
Perhaps it is because of the very large assembly of retired folks who come here. They are very tolerant of different lifestyles. For whatever reason, our Pride event drew a whopping 300,000 people this year. Last year, it was 250,000, so it is still growing.

With an abundance of interest groups geared towards its many LGBT populations, "Asheville May Be the Most LGBT-Friendly City in the U.S." (Livability Magazine), LGBT folks are well integrated into the fabric of Asheville. The abundance of specialized groups, including those for dancers, hikers, walkers, LGBT Elders, vegans, supper club participants, book readers, bar-friendly folks, card players, and movie enthusiasts is wonderful. But that also makes establishing a niche for the Asheville Prime Timers somewhat difficult. The overall population of our region is among the smallest in the constellation of Prime Timers chapters, so we are constantly challenged to provide unique educational and social opportunities for our membership.
