AgingGayfully™

A Gay Guy and a Ally Podcasting About Life, Love, Liberty & Travel

AgingGayfully™

In essenceAgingGayfully™ is a lifestyle; it's a mindset! Happy, Carefree, Cheerful, and Lighthearted, just as Webster defined the word "Gay" in the '30s, '40s, and '50s.

The play on words here is while Chris identifies as a gay senior, everyone wants to age gayfully because everyone wants happiness, to live as carefree as possible, to be cheerful, and to age without worry.

AgingGayfully™ is about finding allies like Josh Wilson, who understands what is is like to be a citizen of the world, supporting everyone in care.

AgingGayfully™ is about navigating transitions... "Setting Sail" into new seasons of life:

  • After Leaving a Job... retirement
  • After a Loss... when life transitions
  • Starting a New Relationship
  • Exploring Your Dreams
  • Not Postponing Happiness
  • Identifying and Living Your Passions
  • Stepping Into Your Comfort Zone

You may not know how to set sail, but AgingGayfully™ can help you with these transitions because contentment is possible as we age. Retirement can lead us on a road that offers several paths to a healthy and happy future. Navigating life's transitions in later life affords us many possibilities for sustaining fulfillment as we age gayfully.

AgingGayfully™ is about living life with dignity in an age-friendly society regardless of orientation or economic status because longevity is a justice issue.

AgingGayfully™ is about finding your voice as we age. We are all part of the aging process and have real connections in diversity.

AgingGayfully™ is a modern type of activism that supports the concept of belonging.

AgingGayfully™ is about Adventure, Leisure, Travel, being a citizen of the world, traveling to destinations, and being part of the global community as we age and prosper in body, mind, and spirit.

    Josh Wilson - The Ally

    Josh Wilson is a painter, designer, musician, writer, and podcaster.  He has also worked in the not-for-profit sphere for over 20 years and has a passion for helping people. He is also the father of 4, so he has a deep appreciation for the madcap absurdity that we call life here on earth.

    Fun fact about Josh: a portrait he painted is owned by the mother of the hip-hop artist Drake, and this portrait has been viewed over 1.5 billion times in Drake’s “God’s Plan” music video.
