The New Gay Men Over 50

 They look sexy, manly, hot as fuck, lean, muscular, confident, and worry-free. These are the men beautifully photographed in the “Men over 50 Project.” These men are pushing the limits of old age – 50 is the new 30! This is the model of the new older gay male – no longer lonely, depressed, and uninviting. Only a few can achieve such a standard, of course. The rest of us are left either struggling to accomplish the prototype or feeling guilty and failed for not realizing it.

The project squarely places age on our bodies and physical outlook – as mainstream gay culture has done since AIDS. The body is where our sense of self resides; where virtuosity and futility live.
