Prime Timers Austin is now a member of the Austin Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (AGLCC). President Jim Harp recently took advantage of AGLCC's offer of free membership for LGBT-supportive non-profit and cultural organizations like ours. By our membership, Jim seeks to position Prime Timers Austin to cooperate with ALGCC in in building a stronger Austin LGBT community and in supporting what makes Austin special. With more than 350 members, AGLCC describes itself as "Central Texas' home for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) supportive businesses and organizations."

During the May Las Vegas Regional Gathering, several of us had the opportunity to tour the Luxor, the site of the 2015 Prime Timers convention. The pyramid-shaped Luxor has over 4000 rooms, but the convention will be in their West Tower.

All of our sleeping rooms, meeting rooms, banquets, and even check-in, will be in that tower, giving our meeting a more intimate feel.

The Habana features two swimming pools, three bars, a restaurant and an adult gift shop, plus shows on Thursday and Sunday nights, and is located in the heart of Oklahoma City's gay bar district.

They may be long gone, but for many Primetimers they're definitely not forgotten: physique magazines, those pocket-size magazines from the 50s and 60s full of gorgeous photos of luscious man teasing in everything but the all together. If you're of a certain age, you might remember such titles as "Tomorrow's Man," "Champ," "Fizeek," "Grecian Guild Pictorial," "Manorama," "Mars," "Trim," "Vim," and "Zing," to name a few.

Why not come a couple of days early and marry the man you love?!? Illinois' new Marriage Rights Bill goes into effect on June 1, 2014:
