Prime Timers is an organization whose objectives include the promotion of educational and cultural activities as well as social welfare among older gay and bisexual men and younger men who enjoy the company of older men, and those who are supportive of these objectives. Read more about the Prime Timers of Baltimore here.

The organization has grown to over 73 chapters worldwide, which are located throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Prime Timers was founded in 1987 by a retired professor, Woodrow Baldwin. He realized a wide gap existed in today's society, which caters almost exclusively to youth at the expense of the older population. This worship of eternal youth is never more flagrant then in gay culture. Woody began the Boston chapter by placing ads in local newspapers and soliciting his many friends. Expecting only a small handful of men to attend the first meeting, he was surprised when over 40 men showed up, indicating to him the need for social and cultural organizations to aid and support aging gay and bisexual men. Woody at age 91 is still active in Prime Timers. He serves as "Founder Emeritus" on the Worldwide Board. If you want to learn more about Woody or to share information about him click: Woody Baldwin, Founder or to learn more about Prime Timers Worldwide in which you will be able to access links to other chapters.
