    Sounds awesome to me. I'm all about pushing further integration of the LGBT community both intra and inter group. Ageism is a serious issue in the LGBT community with its almost uncanny obsession with youth, so this is a step in the right direction in my book. Look, younger will always be more "attractive." A 20 year old will always be "hotter" than a 50 year old, but there's no reason we can't all sit at the table, be friend, drink together and most importantly respect each other and his respective station/phase in life.

    Love and inclusion go a long way. Let's unite as much as possible.

    Nicely put. It's always important to remind the younger generations, although I'm sure they're sick of hearing it, that the older generation (many who paid a price) were crusades that gave the younger generation the freedoms they have today. Sure, Don't Ask Don't Tell, DOMA, gay marriage are all new freedoms but they would never have gotten where they ended if not for the cross dressers, flamboyant 'in your face' gays that fought the good fight for decades!

    The old may not look as hot at 50 as they did at 20 or 30 but their life experiences are a priceless lesson in LGBT history for all generations.

    Yep, the older gay generations fought evil and won. All gay children will have a better life.
