Growing Old….Before You Know It

You never think about getting older, when you are younger. I think I was about 40 and it really started to hit me. My parents were senior citizens – and I was catching up!

So whenever I see an older gay person alone, out at an event or a bar, I always walk mover and say HI. Because that WILL BE me one day.
Now I am 50 – and I am fit and still look pretty good, but yet some young guys ignore me.  No one wants to be ignored – or invisible. 
The subjects of BEFORE YOU KNOW IT are no ordinary senior citizens. They
are go-go booted bar-hoppers, love struck activists, troublemaking
baton twirlers, late night Internet cruisers, seasoned renegades and
bold adventurers. They are also among the estimated 2.4 million lesbian,
gay and bisexual Americans over the age of 55 in the United States,
many of whom face heightened levels of discrimination, neglect and
exclusion. But BEFORE is not a film about cold statistics and gloomy
realities, it’s a film about generational trailblazers who have
surmounted prejudice and defied expectation to form communities of
strength, renewal and camaraderie – whether these communities be affable
senior living facilities, lively activist enclaves or wacky queer bars
brimming with glittered trinkets and colorful drag queens.
