The Portland Metro Club was founded in the fall of 1982 as an alternative to the gay bar scene. The Metro Club was designed as a place for mature men (and their admirers) to gather in a relaxed and accepting social atmosphere.
Since that time the Metro Club has become affiliated with Prime Timers Worldwide, an organization founded in 1987, now having more than 80 chapters around the world. Prime Timers Worldwide was formed in response to the wide gap existing in a society which caters almost exclusively to youth. This worship of eternal youth is sometimes more flagrant in the gay culture.
The organization supports the positive images of the more mature gay and bi-sexual men. Not a political or religious organization, the only mission of Prime Timers is to enrich the lives and experiences of its members worldwide.
