Aging on its own should never be an excuse to not get out and enjoy life. It’s an unfortunate situation for many seniors, however—especially among our LGBTQ elders who often have fewer settings in which they feel comfortable being their true selves.

Prime Timers Minneapolis/St. Paul works to ensure that LGBTQ seniors in the Twin Cities have access to numerous social gatherings with their peers on a monthly basis. These can help create and maintain a rich, inclusive and welcoming social circle. Members enjoy monthly breakfasts, Zoom conversations, book club meetings, coffee meet-ups and other chances to get out and have a chance to laugh, talk, reminisce, connect with old friends and make new friends.

Here are just a few of the offerings!
