What Is Prime Timers Austin?
Prime Timers Austin is a social organization that provides mature gay and bisexual men and others who enjoy their company opportunities to enrich their lives by building friendships in a safe and supportive environment. Prime Timers connects us with others like us and provides an assortment of activities to suit a wide variety of interests. We also provide an avenue into the gay community for older men who have recently “come out.”
Prime Timers Austin is an affiliate of Prime Timers Worldwide founded in Boston in 1987 by Woodrow Baldwin, a retired university professor who is currently a member of Prime Timers Austin. Since its founding, over 60 chapters have been established throughout North America, Europe, and Australia.
Through affiliation with Prime Timers Worldwide, members have access to social gatherings of Prime Timers chapters anywhere. In Addition, there are annual regional and national gatherings of Prime Timers in locations like Palm Springs, Houston, Orlando, Oklahoma City, and Fort Lauderdale.
