Coming Out at 55

Published in: Click to show all news |

By Anthony Hillier, member, Vintage Men / Prime Timers Melbourne

 

I live in Melbourne, Australia and have been a member of Vintage Men Victoria / Prime Timers Melbourne for three years.

 

I am a proud gay man and have been out to my friends for over 20 years. My partner Patrick and I have been together for 21years but I had not told my family that he was more than just my housemate. At the age of 55, 1 decided I needed to come out to them - first to my mum and then to the rest of the family.

Most members of PTWW know that Woody Baldwin founded Prime Timers in Boston in August, 1987. What you probably didn’t know is that the predecessor to the World Wide organization was founded in Provincetown, MA in October, 1991. At the time there were just 11 Chapters but each one of them was represented at this 1st Prime Timers Convention where Woody was elected the first President.

Labor Day Weekend, held at the Habana Inn in Oklahoma City will be held August 30 through noon Monday, September 3, 2012. This year’s theme is adapted from the Mayan Calendar’s end in December 2012, so we want to “party like it’s the end of the world.” Great entertainment has been set up—Friday night features “As The Crow Flies,” an Irish Pub Ban, and will include free Guinness and Harp Ales. Saturday night includes a return of the great “Austin Babtist Women,” a satirical group based on a group of church ladies.

 

Here it is July and most parts of the country still sweltering from the heat. The roster of Independent Membership is also swelling; we are at 133 members from the USA, Canada, Denmark and Israel.
