The Old Gays talk life, joy, and the missing generation of gay elders

Its O Kpod S3 Ep 25 The Old Gays 2

Being fabulous can save your life.

The Old Gays are a social media sensation: flamboyant outfits, lip-synced dance parties, and risque theatrics you might not expect of men in their 70s and 80s.

A lot of their media attention focuses on the joy they bring to all of us. But in their new book, The Old Gays’ Guide to the Good Life, they share a deeper story. This week on It’s OK, Bill, Bob, Mick, and Jessay talk about the missing generation of gay elders, and how being “discovered” late in life saved them.
