Something is missing in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area: A welcoming place for gay men over the age of 40(ish.) Okay, well maybe it does exist. But some men can’t find it, so we are starting a place of our own. We are not talking about a place to meet guys to date, hookup, etc. We are talking about making quality friendships with other gay men, a place to be who you are. We don’t care how much money you make, how many times you go to the gym, where you buy your clothes, etc. At the same time, if you want to go to the gym, somebody will probably go with you. If you really need advice for shopping, somebody will jump in and go. What we have in mind is an eclectic group of guys that get together for things such as: weekend barbeques, watching ball games, taking road trips, and just hanging out in general. Beyond the social get-togethers, we hope this group of men will be supportive and have “each others’ backs.” Some men will be out, others may not be. Some men will have a supportive family, others may not. Wherever there is a supportive gap, we will step in…sort of like a “band of brothers.” This is a work in progress and we want to work together to make it work. Our goal is to make each man feel comfortable and included.
