The Old Gays' Guide to the Good Life

by Mick Peterson

'I've fallen in love with this fabulous foursome ... They are a phenomenon!' Drew Barrymore

From @theoldgays, the internet's most beloved foursome, a book of inspirational stories and aspirational advice for living life at the fullest.



The Old Gays have taken TikTok by storm with their viral videos, by turns outrageous and hilarious, fashionable and fierce. But as four gay men, aged from 67 to 80, Mick, Jessay, Robert, and Bill have lived through decades of momentous change and they've got stories that take more than three minutes to tell.


They grew up in the closet, experienced Stonewall, lived large during the gay sexual revolution, lost friends during the AIDS crisis, dealt with their own HIV+ diagnoses, and saw gay marriage became legal. Between them, 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.


These are the tales - sometimes scandalous, sometimes profound, sometimes heart-breaking - that only an older gay man can tell. Their Guide to the Good Life is a celebration of lives lived to the fullest, and the art of getting old without getting bored. 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.
