Columbia, SC Prime Timers is a social group of older gay or bisexual men (and younger adult men twenty one (21) years and older who admire mature men). It is strictly social. Our members are men who choose to have their social lives enriched by the diverse activities in which our members engage. No single definition can describe Prime Timers, as they come from all walks of life. But one thing is true of all Prime Timers: they enjoy the opportunities and friendships that develop with other Prime Timers throughout the world.

chapter logoAs a group we plan to coordinate meaningful activities to suit our members' needs such as: dining out, potlucks, picnics, monthly meetings, movies, plays, card and board games, bowling, local trips, out of town trips, cruises, outdoor activities, and much more!

Our organization is emerging as a leading force in the gay and bisexual communities, and while we are not a political organization, we are concerned with society as it affects the aging gay and bisexual population. As our organization grows, we will be leading the pack in seeking answers to the needs and problems of maturing gay and bisexual men. It is hoped that soon a Prime Timers Chapter will be in every major metropolitan area in the world.

Feel free to drop-in and say hello! We have a variety of activities to meet the needs of our members. We seek to make new friends and have fun. Come to our monthly socials, our business meetings, or our monthly dinners at unique area restaurants, and more. With Prime Timers, you will find a rich community of interesting people that will enrich your life as well.
