The Old Gays’ Guide to the Good Life – Mick Peterson, Bill Lyons, Robert Reeves + Jessay Martin


The Old Gays are beloved for their TikTok videos where they dance, serve, throwback and generally don’t take themselves too seriously. But as four gay men of a certain age, they have lived through decades of momentous change for the LGBTQ+ community.

Now, Robert, Mick, Jessay and Bill want to tell the unfiltered stories of their lives. And as in their videos, the Old Gays don’t hold back. They grew up in the closet, experienced Stonewall, lived large during the gay sexual revolution, tragically lost most of their friends during the AIDS crisis (Mick and Robert are HIV+), and saw gay marriage became legal.

They’ve been through it all – divorce, depression, bankruptcy, near-death experiences. And then there’s the dinner parties, the nudism, the professional bodybuilding, the orgies and the matter of church. The Old Gays’ Guide to the Good Life is a celebration of lives lived to the fullest, and an exuberant book of advice.

Whether it’s ageing, coming out, losing everything, starting over, finding happiness or just injecting a little more fun into proceedings – it’s good to know someone’s been there before, and they’re more than happy to give their best, bawdiest, most hard-won advice.
