I believe that all men are looking for new ways to live their life as traditional notions of manhood are being expanded in the modern world. I also believe that gay men are ready to step up to their authentic self, expand their whole life, inspire others, and make a difference in the world.
As part of my journey to a deeper and richer expression of myself in the world, I have become increasingly aware that gay men are looking for new ways to address the unique realities of aging as a gay man.
I am please to launch my quest called “gAyGING – gay men aging with pride and purpose”.
What is it about? My quest is about helping gay men age more consciously as gay men. It is about developing inner strength, living powerfully with respect and integrity and expressing their true self in the world. It is about creating opportunities where gay men can explore new ways of embracing the unique realities of aging as a gay man.
Why this quest? As an aging gay man myself, it is meaningful to me. It engages me on my journey to a deeper expression of myself. I don’t quit know how to do it. It is something I cannot do alone. I am passionate about helping other gay men age with pride and purpose.
For the sake of what? The stake that I hold that is at the center of my journey is that “no one should age alone and without purpose”.
What are the outcomes? So far, I have three specific projects to guide my journey:
Research and review of what has already been done on this topic and defining the key issues and desired solutions.
Design workshops or retreats in collaboration with key partners and alliances.
Write a book called “gAyGING – with pride and purpose” – to be released on my 60th birthday, July 1, 2015.
What’s next? I am seeking help, support, partners and alliances. If you have an interest in this topic, please comment below or contact me. Lets talk!
