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.

Okay, by "bicycle express". But that was how I saw myself, galloping along the St Lawrence, a watchful eye out for the Yankees yonder across the mighty river. The dirt road is now a bicycle lane (sometimes more, sometimes less) that followed, by a stretch of the imagination, the 18th century trail that once bound Canada together.

Wichita Prime Timer members hosted a very successful event remembering and celebrating the Stonewall Riots. The entire community and surrounding areas were invited and about 30 attended. Members provided hot dogs, burgers, and sides for all and shared a Stonewall documentary video.

Las Vegas Prime Timers will hold their 6th annual Western Regional Gathering May 5-9, 2013. This year’s event at the Tuscany Suites Hotel and Casino, 255 E. Flamingo, just east of the famous Las Vegas Strip), expects to attract 150 men from all over the country. The Western Regional Gathering includes both scheduled events and free time.
