A Night In with
The Old Gays
Join best friends Robert Reeves, Mick Peterson, Jessay Martin and Bill Lyons, also known as The Old Gays to celebrate the publication of their first book The Old Gays’ Guide to the Good Life.
The Old Gays have taken TikTok by storm with their viral videos, from the outrageous and hilarious, to the fashionable, and fierce. But as four gay men, aged from 67 to 80, Mick, Jessay, Robert, and Bill have lived through decades of momentous change, and they’ve got stories that take more than three minutes to tell.
They grew up in the closet, experienced Stonewall, lived large during the gay sexual revolution, lost friends during the AIDS crisis, dealt with their own HIV+ diagnoses, and saw gay marriage become legal. Between them, they’ve been through it all and their, Guide to the Good Life, is a celebration of lives lived to the fullest, and the art of getting old without getting bored.
This heartfelt and hilarious event will be chaired by Simon Savidge and the evening will be a wonderful reminder that regardless of the dilemma or predicament, it’s good to know someone’s been there before, and they’re more than happy to give their best, bawdiest, most hard-won advice.
